Durham is situated in the North East of England on the River Wear which forms a loop around a rocky peninsula containing the historic city centre and the magnificent Cathedral and Castle. The Cathedral and Castle, both of which have been included in the UNESCO World Heritage list, combine to give the City of Durham one of the most distinctive skylines in the world.
Durham's medieval layout is still evident in the winding streets and vennels beneath the cathedral and castle site. The city has a modern shopping centre, but also offers a haven of peace with pleasant walks along the wooded river banks and the opportunity to take boat trips on the River Wear. The University Botanic Garden has trees and plants from all over the world and is well worth a visit. The city is well served with museums illustrating the county's fascinating blend of Christian, social and industrial heritage.
From Durham it is easy to explore the Durham Dales, part of the North Pennine Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. These dales offer some of the country's finest scenery - a blend of rugged upland, impressive waterfalls, gentle river valleys, wildflower meadows and drystone walls. The heather moorland to the west are pierced by the headstreams of the Derwent, Tees and Wear. At High Force, the Tees falls dramatically over massive boulders for 70 feet to form the largest waterfall in England. The remote and beautiful high Pennines offer panoramic views from quiet moorland roads. The 19th Century lead mining in Upper Weardale is brought to life at Killhope Lead Mining centre.
