Durham información para los huéspedes

Durham visitor information

Durham is an attractive and historic city, well-known for its spectacular Norman Cathedral and Castle, which over-look the city.

Durham is compact yet offers a wide range of facilities. Shops and restaurants co-exist happily with the Victorian Market. Much of Durham’s shopping area is closed to traffic, making for a more relaxed atmosphere. Take time to sit in the cobbled Market Place and enjoy some of the street entertainment, particularly during July and August. The monthly Farmers’ Market is a welcome new addition to the events calendar. Here you will find fresh local specialities to take back home. In the spring and summer, stunning floral displays adorn the City for which Durham regularly wins prizes.

Dozens of regional attractions are easily reached from Durham, making it an ideal touring base. The largest open-air museum in England is to be found at Beamish where you can see life as it was at the beginning of the last century. Fine art treasures can be seen at the John and Josephine Bowes Museum, a French-style chateau in Barnard Castle.

It should be understood that colleges are designed primarily for students: not for children or adults expecting a high level of luxury. However, with this in mind, the colleges do meet a level of comfort that we expect most visitors to be happy with, and we will welcome any feedback where this is not the case.

Historia de Durham

Durham: the City

Archaeological evidence suggests a history of settlement in the area since roughly 2000 BC. The present city can clearly be traced back to 995 AD, when a group of monks from Lindisfarne chose the strategic high peninsula as a place to settle with the body of Saint Cuthbert (which had previously lain in Chester-le-Street), founding a church there.

The name "Durham" comes from the Old English "dun", meaning hill, and the Old Norse "holme", which translates to island. Some attribute the city's name to the legend of the Dun Cow and the milkmaid who in legend guided the monks of Lindisfarne carrying the body of Saint Cuthbert to the site of the present city in 995 AD. The Cathedral Church of Christ, Blessed Mary the Virgin and St Cuthbert of Durham, commonly referred to as Durham Cathedral, is the seat of the Anglican Bishop of Durham. The Bishopric dates from 1080, with the present cathedral being founded in AD 1093. The cathedral is regarded as one of the finest examples of Norman architecture and has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site along with nearby Durham Castle, which faces it across Palace Green.

The castle was originally built in the 11th century as a projection of the Norman king's power in the north of England, as the population of England in the north remained "wild and fickle" following the disruption of the Norman Conquest in 1066. It is an excellent example of the early motte and bailey castles favoured by the Normans. 

Durham: the University

The University of Durham was founded in 1832 and granted a Royal Charter in 1837. It was one of the first new universities to open in England for more than 600 years, and is claimed to be England's third oldest after Oxford and Cambridge, although other higher education institutions also make this claim.

Famous alumni include: former England rugby captains Will Carling and Phil de Glanville along with Vice-captain Will Greenwood. Olympic gold-medal triple jumper Jonathan Edwards graduated in 1987. Noted writers include Edward Bradley, author of The Adventures of Mr. Verdant Green, Minette Walters author of The Sculptress and The Scold's Bridle and Graham Hancock, author of The Sign and the Seal.

I brought my grandson who couldn't believe we were staying in a real castle! The experience lived up to all expectations:- now my wife insists I bring her!

very high standard of welcome, hospitality and an excellent room. Only minor quibble is that the hot elements of the breakfast - porage, bacon, egg etc - were tepid and could have been warmer. Will book again when next in the area.

Durham uni castle accommodations were great. The mattreses at Ambleside and Goldsmiths were bordering on painful, and I was beginning to worry that they were standard issue for uni rooms. Durham was so comfortable that I booked extra days. Helpful staff and security.

We have a comment about the recommended parking arrangements: the website indicated that the Park & Ride could be used. From this we assumed we could park overnight. Not so! Fortunately we asked at the P & R office, thereby avoiding a £70 fine. We were, however, able to park at the College, which was very convenient.

We rented five rooms to stay while watching the cricket in Chester-Le-Street, which we found to be perfect, clean, with friendly staff and a great breakfast. I won't find better value again!

Notice emphasis on Green Environment in the College. Paper cups in paper wrapping rather than plastic drinking cups in plastic wrapping would be more sympathetic to this emphasis. Excellent stay, thank you!

We really enjoyed the experience of staying at the University. As we were accompanying our son to a department open session it proved invaluable in giving him a really good feel for the uni. We thoroughly enjoyed visiting Durham - what a magical place - thanls a lot. Regards Jane Baker and Family

Amazing place to stay, free parking a bonus, great location for visiting Durham... The stairs were a real challenge and if we had been even slightly less fit this would have been a real.problem. Some help might have been offered which would have made a difference.
