Durham

Durham is a county definitely worth visiting. From the cobbled streets of Durham City with its towering cathedral and river, to its market towns and beaches, Durham should be a definite stop on your journey. Don't forget the Durham Dales and many other attractions such as the open air historical museum of Beamish.

Places to visit

 

Beamish (open air historical museum), Cathedral, castle, Botanical Garden, Diggerland.
