Durham's heart and soul, its stunning Norman cathedral never fails to impress. Walk around the cloisters and you’ll recognise them as part of early scenes of Hogwarts.
Live in a spellbinding medieval town, cobbled and green, with student life at its heart
Take a wander along Durham’s winding cobbled streets and you’ll soon discover that this quaint northern city is a quintessentially English experience. The city and university are inseparable with most college buildings interspersed throughout town. Your next lecture could even be on the historic peninsula - a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Take refuge from study at Palace Green where an impeccable croquet lawn will eventually be the setting for your graduation photo. Spend many afternoons here gazing up at the breathtaking 10th Century Cathedral and Castle next door. Refuel in artisan bakeries and cafés like Ciao Ciao or for larger meals, there’s Indian, Thai, Mexican, Japanese, Chinese and Italian cuisines aplenty.
