People have lived in present-day Durham since roughly 2,000 BCE. The history of the town itself dates back to 995 CE when a group of monks from Lindisfarne chose the strategic high peninsula as an ideal place to settle.
With them, the monks brought the body of Saint Cuthbert, upon which they built Durham’s iconic cathedral. This remarkable structure, as well as the 11th century castle, were designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1986.
During the English Civil War, Durham remained loyal to King Charles I. When the royalist forces eventually lost the conflict, the city’s architecture fell into a state of disrepair – although it was rejuvenated in time. Hundreds of years later, the Industrial Revolution mostly passed Durham by.
However, it continued to specialise in carpet making and weaving. Nowadays, of course, the area is better known for dozens of Afternoon Tea Durham establishments.
