Embark on a captivating three-hour walking tour of Durham with Martin Stait North East England ITG Blue badge tourist guide, immersing yourself in the city's rich history and architectural splendour, with the highlight being the majestic Durham Cathedral.

Our journey begins at Millennium Square, where you'll meet by Fenwick Lawson’s striking £250,000 bronze-cast statue of monks carrying St Cuthbert's body. Wander through Durham Market Place, taking in the historic St Nicholas Church, the bustling Town Hall, the vibrant Indoor Market, and the impressive statues of the 3rd Marquess of Londonderry and Neptune.

Stroll down the quaint Bottom of Silver Street, then cross the medieval Framwellgate Bridge. Follow the scenic walkway by the Weir, enjoying views of the fulling mill, cathedral, and castle, then cross the picturesque Prebends Bridge. Continue to the College Gateway, leading to the North and South Bailey, two of Durham’s most historic and attractive streets.

Venture down Dun Cow Lane to Palace Green, framed by the cathedral's awe-inspiring architecture. Inside the cathedral (subject to service times), discover the tombs of St Bede and St Cuthbert, marvel at the UNESCO-listed Norman architecture, and explore the cloisters. Enjoy a brief respite at the cathedral café before concluding your tour back at Millennium Square, enriched by the beauty and history of Durham.
