Durham Cathedral Jun 05, 2011
If you do visit Durham, one of the 'Must not miss attractions' I would highly recommend is the Cathedral. It is one of the most amazing cathedral I have seen. They have a small courtyard, giving you a very 'harry potter' feel. You can pay £4-£5 to go up to the top of the cathedral which is definitely worth it!. It has one of the most breath-taking views of Durham. I would recommend you to check the closing time and whether there is any services in order to avoid disappointment. A really good external view of the Cathedral can be observed from the train station (15 mins walk away from the cathedral itself) or by the 'cafe rouge' or 'topshop' bridge! Entrance is free so why not check it out:) Bon voyage!

Durham Cathedral is a world heritage site and isnamed by the University Chancellor Bill Bryson as one of the most beautiful buildings on earth. Its majesty towers above the rest of the city and living under its shadow for three years, I never grew tired of it. The cathedral choir sing beautifully every day and University services throughout the year fill the Cathedral till bursting. It makes Durham a must on any visit to England.
