Durham Cycle Routes



England Cycle Routes > Durham
The City of Durham is located in the north-east of England. Durham literally means "hill on an island" (the island being England) derived from the old English language. First habited by monks in the 10th century, the city now has a population of around 27 000 and in the former district around 81 000. There are any sites of interest because through the middle-ages many battles took place here.
