Travel Tips for Durham

Durham Castle

by steventilly

Well, how's this for a univerity residence? That's what it is these days, part of University College, one of the colleges of the University of Durham. You can take a visit of the Castle (guided tour only) and it's quite fascinating. You can sneak past the ticket man into the courtyard if all you want to do is have a quick glance at the exterior of the building (that's what I did when I took these pictures).
More pictures are in the "Must See" section.

The best view of the Cathedral

by sourbugger

A walk anywhere around Durham will deliver up interesting and spectacular views of the Cathedral.

One of the best can be found by heading out over Prebends Bridge and into the newer part of the university (or the polytechnic on the hill as we used to call it) . If you use the map then you will find a flight of steps up to St Aidan's college, built on one of the highest points of the city. The view back from there to the main part of the city is spectacular.

You will also find other attractions in this part of town that may interest you such as the Oriental Museum and the Botanical Garden.

Coat of Arms

by sandysmith

Its easy to spot the differing architectural styles as it was built piecemeal by several builders. The coat of arms, which are visible at various points on the walls, denote the bishops responsible for these additions.

Durham Castle - Black Staircase

by iwys

Bishop Cosin's Black Staircase, which stands in the angle between the Great Hall and Bishop Pudsey's building was built in the early 1660s. It is one of the most impressive wooden staircases in the country. It is 17 metres high and, except for the carved side panels, which are of soft wood, is made from oak.

Durham Castle - Kitchen

by iwys

TheCastle kitchen was built by Bishop Fox around 1500. Fox’s coat of arms can be seen in the Tudor style woodwork of the adjacent hatch in the Buttery. The kitchen is at the end of the Great Hall, which now functions as the University College dining hall. The kitchen is still in use and so is an odd mixture of centuries old architecture and modern, metal fittings.
