If you require more persuasion to come to Durham, let me quote author Bill Bryson “I got off at Durham… and fell in love with it instantly in a serious way. Why, it’s wonderful – a perfect little city…. If you have never been to Durham, go there at once. Take my car. It’s wonderful.”

We look forward to welcoming you to Durham!
