Durham is a historic city and the county town of County Durham in North East England. Kick off your visit on the 28th (Sat): don't miss a visit to World War One Soldier Sculpture, appreciate the history behind The Durham Light Infantry Memorial, then take in the pleasant sights at Durham Riverside Walk, then pause for some serene contemplation at Durham Cathedral, and finally explore the historical opulence of Durham Castle. Keep things going the next day: see the interesting displays at Beamish Museum and then look for gifts at Durham Market Hall.
