I visited Durham by train from home in York. The city of Durham is a historic city in North East England. It is on the river Wear. It was founded in 995AD. Durham is a hilly city, with winding cobbled streets. There are lovely riverside walks. Durhams pride and joy is the Norman Cathedral, which dominates the hill top, along with the Castle. The Castle is 11th century. The tomb of Saint Cuthbert is in the Cathedral. Durham is a University city. Bill Bryson called Durham a " Perfect little City " Newcastle is 18 miles north. Durham railway station is on the East Coast Main Line. London takes about 3 hours.----Plenty of Tea Rooms and Pubs for the tourists.-------------------
