Durham

Durham is a city in the north east of England, within County Durham. The city lies to the south of Newcastle, and is well known for its cathedral and castle, which are both UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Durham's railway station is situated on the East Coast Main Line, which utilises a picturesque viaduct on its way into the city.

How to get to Durham from
Route 1:

The train between London and Edinburgh is operated by East Coast, travelling up the east side of England and Scotland along the historical East Coast Mainline, between London King's Cross and Edinburgh Waverley. The relatively quick journey is a great alternative to flying, as it gets you right to the heart of the cities in a matter of hours, and for a very reasonable price (as long as you book in advance!).

In the past, a number of these services continued to/originated from Glasgow Central. East Coast now only operates one Glasgow service per day Mondays-Fridays, none on Saturdays and only one on Sundays. If you are travelling between London and Glasgow, the West Coast Man Line is a better option.
