The City of Durham
Durham is well known for the magnificent Durham Cathedral and 11th century original Norman ‘motte and bailey’ castle, Durham Castle, both of which are World Heritage Sites and Grade II listed buildings. Since 1832, the castle has been the home of Durham University. Historically, the geographical position of Durham meant it was in a prime position in the defence of England against the Scottish. Durham played an integral part in the defence of the north and Durham Castle is the only Norman Castle Keep never to have suffered a breach. The cathedral has an absolutely stunning interior, and you can understand why it is regarded as one of the finest Romanesque cathedrals in Europe.
Steeped in history, Durham Castle is the perfect venue for your Durham wedding. The website even lists available dates and with a fee of only £995 for key summer wedding dates, it is affordable too.
