We frequently hit the headlines for our world-leading research and events.
Our research spans the sciences, social sciences and arts and humanities in subjects from astronomy and cosmology to education, energy to landslides, music to theology and religion.
Our unique cultural attractions include Durham Castle, Botanic Garden, Palace Green Library, Oriental Museum and the Assembly Rooms Theatre.
Covid-19 restrictions mean many of our sites are unable to open in the usual way but you can still still enjoy a wide variety of performances and exhibitions, an extensive programme of public lectures and a whole host of online exhibitions and other activities. Whatever your interest, there's something for everyone to enjoy.
