Located on the River Wear, Durham is a historic city known for its Norman cathedral and 11th-century castle. The cathedral is officially named The Cathedral Church of Christ and it is the seat of the Anglican Bishop of Durham. It was founded in 1093, and is considered to be one of the best examples of Norman architecture. Durham Castle was meant to symbolize the power that the Norman king had over the north of England, which is visible when one examines its bold architectural features.
