The Roman cathedral has a Norman structure from the 11th-13th century.

Durham cathedral View of the cloister

Pictures are forbidden inside. Too bad because the cathedral is full of surprises :

- pattern of columns

- 9 altars chapel

- Galilee chapel

- jube

- pulpit and baptismal font

- astronomical clock


We can get a nice view over the castle (closed the day of my visit) from the top of the tower of the cathedral.


Historic Center

The historic center of Durham is located on a peninsula, and we can get a nice view from the banks.
