Former Venue – ARCHIVE

the Cathedral skyline…

Venue until 2019:

With its castle and unequalled Norman cathedral (a World Heritage Centre), Durham is an ideal holiday centre for both touring and relaxing.

The College of St Hild and St Bede is part of Durham University. NORVIS has a long and very happy association with the college, and we are always made to feel extremely welcome by the domestic and administrative staff. It is within easy reach of Durham city centre and the bus and railway stations, and close to the A1(M) motorway. A short, pleasant riverside walk from the College leads right to the heart of this ancient city.

Here is a map of the Hild and Bede campus, as well as maps of the Durham City and the university. (Please note that the latest university map is interactive: HERE.)

Please note that the Henry Dyson Room (on the college map) has now been renamed the Lord Glenamara Room.

NORVIS XLIX – Saturday 27th July to Saturday 3rd August 2019

Accommodation is in single study bedrooms with shared facilities. A range of packages is available: accommodation only, half-board, full-board. Read more in the brochure.

Please note: the St Hild and St Bede site is on many levels and, although the grounds are beautiful and extensive, they are very steep in many areas. The College does not allow camping, caravanning or animals on site.
