After a 50 minute train journey from York, we made it to Durham which is a well known university town. Durham University is one of the World's top 100 universities. The town was therefore full of students everywhere. There were massive queues for Subway at all the Subway locations in Durham. I guess those students are hungry and Subway is cheap student food.
...but I digress.
Durham is a charming town. We met our friend at the Durham Marketplace. It's the city centre.
Durham Cathedral also happens to be a location used for the Harry Potter films as well. It's a pretty massive Norman building and an UNESCO World Heritage site.
You aren't supposed to take pictures inside the Cathedral. We respected that but we took a shot of this little area since it wasn't really inside the church bit. This also happens to be one of the spots they used for Harry Potter.
We explore some more around the street of Durham looking for good photo opportunities.
The next morning we set off from Durham into the unknown. We found shelter at Carla's house. Read more: A Visit to South Yorkshire and East Midlands
