About Durham Cathedral

Overlooking one of the most picturesque cities in the United Kingdom, Durham Cathedral is a prime example of beautiful religious architecture and continues to attract visitors from all over the world. As one of the most significant churches in the country, it continues to be used a place of worship by both tourists and the local congregation.


Boasting a 66m tall central tower that offers commanding views over the surrounding area, it also house a number of relics deemed important to the Church of England. Perfectly in keeping with the medieval city below, Durham Cathedral maintains an atmosphere and aesthetic that will transport you back in time and offers a good insight into what influence the Church had historically and still maintains today.
