We spent some time in Durham's city center. This shopping area is built around the Cathedral, University and Castle; and it is quite a fun (and hilly) area to walk and shop.
This beautiful building is St. Nicholas Church to the right and the city civic center is straight ahead.
Abigail was checking out the old pillars in front of this house-turned-restaurant.
I love the narrow streets and the old houses that were mostly converted to store fronts.
We also took some time to play at a local park. This park was at the top of a huge hill and provided an incredible view of the adjacent hill with the castle and cathedral. The kids also enjoyed the playground.
With all the hills, we did a lot of walking ... and carrying the kids.
And you gotta love the red British phone boxes.
There are a few more pictures of the park and more in the Durham City Center photo album.
