Durham City History
The Durham City history pages cover the little cathedral city of Durham, which is surrounded on three sides by the River Wear. Durham City plays host to Durham University, which occupies the castle that faces out towards the Cathedral across Palace Green. These pages explore the origins of Durham and the surrounding parts of the city that include Gilesgate and Framwellgate Moor, Neville’s Cross and Crossgate Moor.
