Durham Castle

In the heart of the City, Durham Castle forms part of Durham's UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Grade 1 listed building shares Palace Green with Durham's iconic Norman Cathedral and is a few hundred yards from all the facilities and amenities that the City has to offer. A wide variety of comfortable bedrooms is available, ranging from standard rooms with shared facilities to magnificent state rooms. Accommodation is available during University vacations; January, Easter and throughout July, August and September. In 1072, the castle started life as a simple defensive mound commissioned by William the Conqueror to defend the peninsula formed by the meander in the River Wear. Since then, the castle has been home to the Bishops of Durham who over time have made various structural additions as and when required.
