In Durham City you're among some of the world's finest architecture. This is a truly beautiful City, where the famous Castle and Cathedral - together designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site - dominate the skyline. With a population of around 43,000 Durham has a compact, friendly feel but still provides the facilities you would expect of a thriving city including a number of cafés, bars and restaurants. Depending on which of our colleges you belong to, you could be based right in the historic centre of the City or just a short walk away in one of our purpose-built, landscaped colleges. Durham is only ten minutes away from Newcastle by train, with a regular rail service linking the cities. In Newcastle you'll find a wide range of choices for entertainment, culture and shopping. Living in Durham City really is the best of both worlds.
