DURHAM - Through My Eyes

Durham, England

Durham is a beautiful city in the North east of England which i went to visit at the end of March. It was my first visit to the city and i was amazed at how beautiful it was and took quite a few pictures.

Im going to post most of the photo's i have, so i may not be able to carry on this thread after the first few posts. This is the first thread i have started and i took these pictures with a rather average camera so forgive me for the pictures that may be a tad blurry . I will be getting a new camera soon and will use that for a new Liverpool thread i will start in a few months. So in a way im using this thread as a tester :P

Anyway, Enjoy the photos:



Above is the Castle on the left and the beautiful Cathedral on the right, this is the view as you get of the train. Both the castle and the cathedral were built on a hill with the town surrounding it.















Unfortunately there were some resurfacing works in the main square, but its still quite easy to grasp its beauty




























































Below is one of my favourite shots, since the Cathedral really dominates the view:









This is also another one of my favourites:







Thanx for Looking

Ah, thanks so much for these. Three years at university here 2001-4. Not been back since, and these pictures make me miss it like a limb.

I have fond memories of Durham when I visited the North East back in the 1950's. The view from the train is spectacular - something you never forget. Thanks for pics.

Lovely shots. Having just seen your Liverpool thread, this is a totally different atmosphere.

There are so many of these lovely little towns, very often underrated.

Great pictures!

P.S. As with any town in this style, there's obviously a huge cathedral.

Durham is a magical place. I spent a lot of time there and it's absolutely beautiful.

Did you go up to the top of the cathedral?

Completely agree it is a stunning place, unfortunately i was only there for 1 day so didnt have enough time to go to the top. Id love to compare the two views from Liverpool Anglican Cathedral and Durham cathedral one day so hopefully next time i go ill be able to bring back some photos
