Travel Tips for Durham

Central Towers of Durham Cathedral

by yooperprof

Durham Cathedral is the site of the shrine of the great St. Cuthbert, famous 7th century Bishop of nearby Lindisfarne. It's also contains the tomb of the Venerable Bede, the patron saint of English Historians. I really felt as if I were on a pilgrimage here!! Sorry this image is off-center. It was the last picture on my roll, and it didn't "advance" far enough to include the whole shot. Typically of me, I hadn't brought any extra film, and although I did purchase more film when I was back downstairs at the gift shoppe, I wasn't about to climb 450 steps twice in one afternoon.

Botanic Gardens

by maria_te

I love the Botanical Gardens and this one does not make a difference!! The Durham University Botanic Garden is lovely and very beautiful!! It is roughly 10 minutes walk from the city centre (sorry, I'm terrible in giving directions!! Better to ask someone on the way!)
They have gorgeous collections from all over the world and a couple of pieces of (interesting) contemporary art scattered thoughout. Tickets cost ý1.75 per person.

What a lovely pair of knockers...

by sourbugger

As you approach the entrance to Durham Cathedral take a good look at the pair of knockers than stand proudly on the door.

They are not original, as they were removed a few years ago to be placed in a museum.

This event famously featured on a BBC childrens show. The clip is still often repeated on those "Bloopers" or "It'll be all right on the night" cock-up shows.

When the presenter of the piece handed over to Simon Groom the Blue Peter presenter back in the studio,he remarked "Mmm, what a beautiful pair of knockers." Simon denied it was intentional sexual innuendo...but do we really believe him ?

The original purpose of the knockers was to summon night watchman if a person presented themselves at the Cathedral seeking sanctuary.

Perhaps Simon Groom needed a similar service after his utterance !

This is the old Almshouses (almshouses were charitable houses for the poor). Nowadays it is a Restaurant/Tea Room, and the meals are rather nice. They are quite "wholesome", well presented, tasty and not too expensive. The menu changes often.

Durham Castle - Keep

by iwys

The Castle Keep stands on a high mound or motte. A simple keep was built by the Normans in the 11th century. Later, a large, octagonal building was constructed by Bishop Hatfield (1345-81). Over the centuries it fell into disrepair, but it was rebuilt in the 1840s by Anthony Slavin, following the original plans, and it has since been used as a student dormitory.
