Set on the banks of the River Wear, the Durham Marriott is right at the heart of the historic Cathedral city. Many rooms offer spectacular views across the river and the city's dramatic skyline, as well as all the creature comforts you could need. The city itself offers a wealth of attractions - dominated by the Castle and impressive Cathedral; it is a maze of fascinating cobbled backstreets that spread out through the old town.
There is plenty to see in the surrounding area, and as the hotel is just five minutes from the A1(M), you can reach them quickly. Don't miss the fascinating Open Air Museum in nearby Beamish, or the chance to take a leisurely boat trip down the river from Elvet Bridge.
