Durham Castle and Cathedral

Brief description

Durham Cathedral was built in the late 11th and early 12th centuries to house the relics of St Cuthbert and the Venerable Bede. Beside it stands the castle: a solid Norman fortress. You get a wonderful view of both when heading north on the train on the East Coast mainline.

Unesco WHS list ref: 370

I’ve only visited once, a whistle stop walk to see the cathedral during the lunch break of a training course. Must go back and see it properly!
