Durham University – Friday 16th July 2021

Durham is very hilly and, at the highest point, are the cathedral and castle which overlook the city, and the second Waterstones is also on Sadler Street, at the top of the hill that goes up to these beautiful buildings. The castle wasn’t open but we went into the cathedral to stop for coffee.  They had an immersive art exhibition in the Galilee Chapel called LIGHT by light artist Chris Levine, featuring lasers that pass through a crucifix, bathing the cathedral in a beautiful blue light.  The Cathedral and Castle at Durham were made a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1986.
