We spent this morning wandering around the old part of Durham which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, visiting the Cathedral, which is the resting place of St Bede and has the shrine of St Cuthbert. Unfortunately we weren’t able to take the castle tour as it is closed over the festive season.
Durham is a university city and has a vibrant air to it, there are numerous sports facilities bordering the river and the university uses many old buildings including the castle for its educational facilities.
This afternoon we took Layla for another long walk along the River Wear and finished the day by spending the evening with Peter and Alison sharing a few convivial drinks.
