One of my favourite Cathedrals, World heritage site, bit of a walk up hill, but there is a bus to the site, well worth a visit, awe inspiring

Simply stunning architecture and surrounds. Allow time to wander and soak in the charm. Well worth the walk up the steep hill to access.

Awesome is a modern word which describes the cathedral perfectly Great to walk up to it but there is a bus service to the main door. Interiror is remarkable as you would expect. Terrific to stand or sit and stare and wonder at the architecture....More

A wonderful place of spiritual and architectural value. Wonderful that entrance only costs a voluntary contribution. Certainly a visit not to be missed, steeped in history and grandeur. Organise tours or by yourself, plenty of guides to answer questions.

Good news: you can see the Cathedral from almost anywhere in the city. Bad news: this is because it sits atop a steep hill, so getting there on foot can be taxing. I saw local buses 40 and 40A with the Cathedral as their destination...More

Called into the Cathedral mid-morning on my way to another event. Because of the ongoing building work on the doors you enter through the Galilee chapel where Bede is interred. You can then make your way into the main body of the Cathedral to enjoy...More

This is a super cathedral with lots to see especially the tombs of Bede and Cuthbert. Do not miss the opportunity to climb the tower for the view - 325 steps. The stained glass is wonderful too and the building is majestic. We didn't have...More

It was a fascinating visit despite a busy Monday morning. The interior architecture and brief were well written. As the Cathedral was undergoing repairs, the exit signage was not prominently displayed. It was worth the visit if you have the time in Durham.
