Durham is a city rich in history, monuments, and tourism attractions. There are several indoor and outdoor attractions to choose from. A Durham student can go to a castle or take a stroll along the river. This post will offer a quick outline of what Durham University students should see!
Elvet Bridge is a mediaeval stone arch bridge that spans the River Wear. It is a Grade I listed edifice that connects downtown Durham to the Elvet section of the city. Take a look at the bridge and the stunning countryside that surrounds it.
The university is roughly a 15-minute drive away from the ruins of this 13th-century priory. Entrance to the Priory is free. There is an exit fee to pay once you park. It takes around 1-2 hours to tour the Priory, so leave enough time to see everything.
Durham Cathedral, completed in 1093, is one of Europe’s greatest specimens of Romanesque architecture. The Cathedral and its amazing collections are open to the public. That’s an interesting fact! This Cathedral served as Hogwarts School in the Harry Potter films. Several key scenes in the first two films, The Philosopher’s Stone and The Chamber of Secrets, were shot within the cathedral.
