Bus to Ushaw College

by andrewbebb

I am traveling by train from Liverpool to Durham City Station Is it possible to get a convenient bus to drop me close to Ushaw College where I shall be attending a conference in September. I have limited walking ability.

Re: Bus to Ushaw College

by leics

The college website itself suggests taking a taxi from Durham station:

which I am afraid implies that there is no convenient bus service.

Re: Bus to Ushaw College

by Britannia2

My sister used to be a student in Durham and she says a 52 goes to the college. The bus station is in the town centre at the bottom of the hill from the railway station and going down in OK but it is a very steep climb back up when you are going home.

Yes, bus no.52 to Esh Winning has a stop by the college, but there aren't many buses a day, and none on Sundays. Here's the timetable: http://durham.pindar.com/tt/52_725.pdf

You'd be better off with a taxi. It's about the same distance from the train station as my house is, and a taxi home for me costs around £7.

Travel Tips for Durham

Medieval Streets

by iwys

As well as the grand architecture of the Cathedral and Castle, Durham also has a maze of medieval streets winding up and down hills. Some are lined with red sandstone buildings while others have colourfully-painted houses.

They include Fleshergate which was the flesh hewer's street or butcher's quarter (this was the name of the part of Saddler Street that joins the Market Place), Souter Peth, the shoe maker's street, the old name for the street at the western end of Elvet Bridge from where the bridge joins Fleshergate, Owengate, possibly the oven gate, close to the site of a medieval bakehouse, Saddler Street, where saddles were made or sold, Framwelgate, the street leading to the fram well which once supplied the market place with water, or perhaps the street leading from a well, hence from-well-gate and Dun Cow Lane, from where the carving of the Dun Cow can be seen on the Cathedral.

Alleyways in Durham are known as vennels.

Cathedral Reflection

by sandysmith

The classic view of the cathedral, down by the riverside, is everyones favourite classic shot - but I was happy to get a reflection of it too :-))) Dave scrambled up and down a muddy bank to see if there's was a better angle but the one I took originally was the one for me!

Indian Food

by maykal

If you've had a gutful of pizza and would rather gouge both eyes out than order another pasta carbonara, head for one of Durham's three excellent Indian restaurants. Firstly, there's Shaheen's on the Bailey (the long cobbled street leading past the Cathedral)...now I have to admit to not having eaten at Shaheen's, as it has always been full...if they're so full they have to turn people away, they must be doing something right! It is close to a number of colleges, so very popular with students. Up on Claypath, a hilly street leading away from the Market Square past the library/theatre, there are two good Indian restaurants, Rajpooth and Capital. Because of their location, slightly out of town, and the fact that they stay open quite late, you won't be turned away no matter how busy they are. If students get on your nerves, go for indian rather than Italian, as the Italian places tend to be much cheaper. All your standard Indian restaurant food here...I've eaten at Rajpooth a number of times and have never had a bad meal, Chicken Dansak, spicy with lentils and pineapple, is my current favourite.

Rajpooth also does take-away.

Take in a spiritual experience

by sourbugger

When visiting the Cathedral you should try and time your visit to take in a short service.

Even if you are an avowed Atheist or Hindu, Muslim or Jedi, or whatever - then it is still difficult but not to admire the quality of the singing by the choristers.

The Choristers have been part of the life of the cathedral for over 600 years and still sing services 8 times a week.

They sing three times on Sunday, and so have Monday off. During the week Evensong is usually at 5.15 pm, but check on the website or at the Cathedral to be sure, or to see if they are on tour elsewhere.

The Cross

by steventilly

This cross comemorates those who died in the wars, though I think it is much older than this recent element of our history.
It stands to the right of the Cathedral entrance at the end of Palace Green, overlooking the river down below and across to South Street, opposite.
