A student’s honest opinion
“As Durham is such a small city, it is mainly made up of students, which means it has many bars and pubs. Every Durham college has its own bar, serving very cheap drinks. Colleges also put on events like bops and formal dinners. Durham has 4 night clubs, including Klute (the worst nightclub in Europe).
During the day, the numerous independent coffee shops are very popular, Vennels is renowned for doing the best cakes. There are also many restaurants- Spags serves large portions of high quality authentic Italian food at student friendly prices. There is also a small cinema/theatre. There are many beautiful walks around Durham too. Although Durham is small, with little shopping, Newcastle and the Metro centre are only 10 minutes away by train.” Laura, 21
