Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from $79 USD / Adult
Travel south to the rustic city of Durham, a medieval wonder set along the River Wear. Meet up with a local guide for a narrated walking tour that climbs uphill to the Romanesque Durham Cathedral. Go inside the great church, known by most as Durham Cathedra, but officially called by a much longer moniker – The Cathedral Church of Christ, Blessed Mary the Virgin and St. Cuthbert of Durham. Opened in 1018, the cathedral’s majestic rib-vaulted design was a monumental architectural innovation of the period. Gaze up this super example of superb design and engineering, while learning about the storied history of Durham’s great church. The cathedral still attracts pilgrims from around the world and you’ll be able to count yourself among them. On your way back to the ship, make a photo stop at the Angel of the North, an awe-inspiring steel sculpture that’s become the iconic symbol of Newcastle.
  • Follow a local guide through the streets of Durham and go inside its famed cathedral.
  • Witness the church’s great rib-vaulted design, a monumental architectural achievement for the period.
