Relax and unwind in Durham

The city of Durham sits in the heart of a county which offers breathtaking countryside views and an impressive coastline. Known for being one of the most relaxing locations in the UK, Durham offers solace for its residents as well as visitors. It's a great place to unwind in one of the local spas and take walks, in the city itself and in surrounding areas.

The iconic Durham Cathedral and Castle World Heritage Site offers a glimpse into the fascinating history of  this metropolis, which was little but a hill surrounded by trees way back in AD 995. Visitors can explore the Beamish Museum, known as the living museum of the North, or the Locomotion – The National Railway Museum at Shildon, to get a bigger picture of the heritage of Durham in a leisurely and enjoyable way.
