Durham Cathedral was founded in AD 1093 and is still regarded as one of the finest examples of Romanesque cathedrals in Europe. Durham Cathedral has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The same goes for Durham Castle which was built in the 11th century.
Durham Castle faces Durham Cathedral across the Palace Green, high above the River Wear. The castle is still home to University College, Durham and has been in continuous use for over 900 years. The whole of the centre of Durham is designated a conservation area.
