Durham informazioni visitatori

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.

La storia di 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 booked the rooms for our party (2 ensuite single, 2 single and one twin). As stated on the questionnaire handed in at reception(why are we given 2 questionnaires???) , it would have been helpful if we had been advised the hours that the central heating was available.

My friend and I enjoyed our experience at Durham Castle. Choice of breakfast food was good. Staff were very helpful. The setting was amazing and very centrally located in the town.

We really enjoyed our stay and appreciated the refurbished facilities. I can't remember my room number, but it was high in the keep. We managed the stairs with our bags but it was hard work! Best to warn potential customers that it is quite a climb.

Online booking very easy, staff at the college really nice and made me feel welcome. The college is very close to the cathedral and in a lovely part of the city. Would definitely go back! Thank you

Fantastic place to stay - we were in the keep with fab views over Durham. The breakfast was really good and you can drive up and park in front of the cathedral.

Rather difficult if you are not very mobile ( a long way down & up again to Durham) but otherwise very good indeed position wise. Accommodation welcoming, clean & comfortable at a really good price- excellent value for money.

A totally enjoyable experience, with excellent help and information from reception. The breakfast selection was amazing. One tiny thing...please don't put the mushrooms with the sausages. Vegetarians then have to avoid them.

Extremely friendly & helpful staff. The guided tour was a great extra benefit. 126 stairs to the rooms were challenging - but worth it for the views etc.

(Revisione di Durham Castle, Durham)

Toilet/shower a bit cramped with no hanging opportunities or shelving. Everything clean and in order though. Provision of a drinking glass would be good. Nice quiet room. Could you fit the front door with a soft closing/locking mechanism - I know such devices exist. Very enjoyable stay, hope to come again.
