Durham
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 the University of Durham. 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: 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.
