One thing not miss here
The World Heritage Centre! Its tiny and easily missed but gives a great overview of the whole site and why its World Heritage
Stayed at
The Old School House B&B, Berwick-Upon-Tweed
Ate at
The Cathedral Cafe

Durham’s World Heritage Site has the strap line ‘A Living World Heritage Site’ and it really is. The Norman castle is used by the University of Durham and the Cathedral is a living place of worship, pilgrimage and place of music and education. We were lucky enough to visit during the Heritage Open Days Weekend so were able to get a tour of the World Heritage Site from the Co-ordinator who told us not only the history of the site but also about how its managed and lived in today. The Open Treasure exhibition in the cathedral opened last month and is both a beautifully crafted exhibition but also houses some incredible artefacts.
