Durham and the River Wear

Durham and its Cathedral

Durham is a wonderful city to visit with its historic cathedral, castle and river. We recently had a family wedding at Durham Castle and had a long weekend there. The wedding was a great family event and the venue couldn't have been better. We stayed in some riverside apartments and, having responsibility for our two-year-old grandson Hugh for a couple of days, we took the opportunity for some river trips. One day we took a rowing boat out and the next we took the trip boat, the Prince Bishop river cruiser.
