COUNTY DURHAM IS THE LAND OF THE PRINCE BISHOPS, ONE OF ENGLAND’s MOST’ NOTHERLY COUNTIES AND PART OF THE ANCIENT BORDER KINGDOM OF NOTHUMBRIA .
At the County’s heart lies DURHAM CITY, small enough to enjoy on foot yet so exceptional that its cathedral and castle are acclaimed as a World Heritage Site .
To the west of the City the lovely scenery of the DURHAM DALES forms part of one of ENGLAND’s largest Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, The North Pennines . Add a fascinating heritage from Mediaeval castle built to defend the North to the cradle of the world’s railways-and you have a largely rural county full of interest and attraction .
In Teesdale historic Barnard Castle is full of character and boasts one of County Durham’s most remarkable attractions-The Bowes Museum . This splendid French-style chateau houses one of Britain’s most important collections of European art . The bustling market town is named after its 20th Century castle , now a craggy ruin overlooking the River Tees . In contrast , nearby Raby still stands intact as one of England’s finest Mediaeval castles. Both serves as reminders of this border area’s turbulent past.
