“One of the great experiences of Europe'

Wolfson Gallery

Writing in the 1950s, the renowned architectural historian, Nikolaus Pevsner described Durham as "one of the great experiences of Europe to the eyes of those who appreciate architecture".

We are inclined to agree, and are delighted to bring together a series of historic views of the city to celebrate Palace Green’s 25 years as a UNESCO World Heritage site. The exhibition draws together paintings, prints and photographs from the University collections, showing a changing city over 300 years.
