Spotlight on Durham
Durham Cathedral looking at its best. It was the sight of this building that made author Bill Bryson get off the train and go explore Durham. It was one sentence in his book
'Notes from a Small Island' along the line of "Durham...go there at once, take my car!" that got him the invitation to become Chancellor of Durham University.
You can see why he was impressed.
Oh and a significant part of Harry Potter was filmed here :)
