The historic city of Durham attracts many visitors each year. They are drawn to its iconic buildings, particularly the great Norman cathedral and castle as well as the surrounding and relatively unspoilt medieval town. In this tour of the famed city, fifty of these wonderful structures will be showcased. It features the most renowned buildings of course but then goes beyond the ancient town core to describe Durham’s flourishing university campus as well as bridges, chapels, theatres and pubs and more recent (and more controversial) architectural adventures. All of them – ancient and modern – help to tell Durham’s extraordinary story. Added together they make up what has aptly been called ‘The Durham difference’.
Durham City in 50 Buildings explores the history of this fascinating city through a selection of its most interesting buildings and structures, including lesser-known buildings tucked away, showing the changes that have taken place over the years. The book will appeal to all those who live in Durham or visit the city, or who have an interest in the area.
