Why move to Durham?
Durham is steeped in history and once called ‘a perfect little city’ by author Bill Bryson. With cobbled streets, quaint shops, a world renowned university and imposing cathedral; Durham is a fantastic place to live.
The river Wear twists and turns through Durham City and surrounding areas and the resident River Cruiser is spectacular on a sunny day. The area has so much to offer from theatres and museums to restaurants and bars. There are many parks and play areas to keep the children entertained and a varied nightlife to suit adults of all interests.
Durham City offers a bustling train station with links to Newcastle, York and Leeds to name a few as well as direct trains to London in less than 3 hours.
