Durham is known to be about the brains and the booze, and you’ll find both alive and well in its city centre. Durham Castle and Durham Cathedral are picture perfect landscapes that look marvellous from any angle, whether from across the river or down the lane. But as soon as the sun goes down, Bailey’s iconic buildings become the backdrop for a great night out. You won’t be at a loss for things to do, since the university buildings, shopping, bars, and friends are all nearby. Living in the Bailey will give you a chance to experience tried and true Durham from atop its gnarly peninsula and above the River Wear.
