If you’re looking to visit a county that offers rolling countryside and rugged coastlines that are peppered with cultural gems, then look no further than County Durham. Located in the North East of England, the county is bordered by Northumberland, Cumbria, North Yorkshire and Tyne and Wear. It’s a county bursting with history, most obvious in the cobbled streets and towering castles. However, there’s much more to this county than meets the eye.
Peering Into Durham’s Past
For those who do like to peer into the past Durham is packed with historic sites such as Auckland Castle and Finchale Priory. However, the county’s more recent history is also there to be explored in the form of attractions such as the Derwentcote Steel Furnace and the World Heritage Site Visitor Centre, where you can gain an in-depth overview of the county’s evolution and expansion.
The Best of Coast and Countryside
When it comes to the Great Outdoors, Durham has scenery that rivals any of the best in the country. A trek across the Durham Dales or the North Pennines will bring you into contact with some of the UK’s most breathtaking and wild backdrops. However, if you prefer to be close to the sea, the Durham Heritage Coast offers spectacular views of the North Sea and wonderful cliff-top walks.
Dining Out in Durham
Durham has also staked its claim as a contender on the culinary scene. With plenty of fertile farmland, restaurateurs and chefs are taking advantage of the local crops and livestock to serve sumptuous, locally-sourced dishes. Be sure to check out Beamish Hall, The Bay Horse in Darlington and Bistro 21 in the city of Durham.
