The city contains the third oldest university in England, a 900 year old cathedral, said to be the finest example of Norman architecture in England (and site of the Harry Potter movies), and a 13th century castle. The vicinity of the cathedral and castle has been designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. The Conference Dinner on the 15th will be a banquet in the renowned Lumley Castle near by.
The local airports (Newcastle and Teeside) have direct flights from many European cities including London, Amsterdam and Paris. Durham railway station is on the main line linking London (three hours) to Edinburgh (two hours) by rail.
