Durham is a spectacular cathedral city with a rich heritage. Narrow cobbled streets wind their way around the rocky peninsula to the majestic Norman cathedral and castle, which are a designated World Heritage Site. The city is well served by motorway access, Durham railway station, and Newcastle International Airport (30 minutes by car, 1 hour by rail).

The deadline for registration is 21st February, 2018.
