Join one of our friendly Global Guides on a trip to explore the north of England.
Saturday 30 October - Durham
The City of Durham is full of charm and history, with a river running through its centre and with two well-known-landmarks, Durham Castle and Cathedral, towering majestically over the streets. You will be enchanted by this beautiful location.
On this trip you will get the opportunity to explore these two historical sites. Durham cathedral was built in 1093 and is known for its Romanesque architecture. The cathedral’s unique medieval cloister is also known for featuring in the first two Harry Potter films, staging as part of Hogwarts’ magical grounds in 'The Philosophers Stone' and 'The Chamber of Secrets'.
Similarly, Durham Castle also played a role in the Harry Potter films, as it inspired the interior of the renowned Great Hall.
The city centre is just as magical, filled with charming cafes and shops nestled amongst the cobbled streets that wind their way through the city centre.
This trip costs £30. This price includes return travel, entry to the castle, and two tour guides for the day.
