31 May 2011 - Durham City.

Today we visited Durham City and took a few photos around the city centre while we were there, as it was fine and sunny. As usual the city centre was very busy.

The first photo below is a view of Framwellgate Bridge looking towards the City Centre with Durham Castle on the right. The next photo is a view from the Cathedral looking towards the railway viaduct outside Durham Station. The last photo is a view of the entrance to Durham Castle.

After we visited Whitley Bay today we stopped at Tynemouth to take a few photos of Longsands Beach.

Below are three photos of the beach and a view of the old swimming pool looking more derelict than ever - what a wasted resource.
