Durham Castle and Cathedral


Durham is a city sits on the River Wear in north east England. It is well known for its Norman cathedral (as shown on the top right of the card) and 11th-century castle (as shown on the top left of the card), both designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO list named “Durham Castle and Cathedral” in 1986. The castle has been the home of Durham University since 1832. Thank you very much my friend Lindsey Lee, for this great postcard featuring some of the principal landmarks of Durham. The special Christmas stamps and London Tower cancellation are appreciated too!
