Durham Cathedral

Durham Cathedral, in the North East of England, was founded in 1093 and is still a centre for Christian worship today. It is generally regarded as one of the outstanding examples of a Norman cathedral in Europe, and has been designated as part of a World Heritage site along with nearby Durham Castle[?].

The Cathedral houses the shrine and related treasures of Cuthbert of Lindisfarne, a 7th Century saint, and these are on public view. It is also possible to climb the 325 steps to the top of the Tower, from where a fine view of Durham and the surrounding area can be enjoyed.
