This is the only English county with the word "County" in it's title. The official county tourist board says, "With its iconic Cathedral and Castle World Heritage Site - Durham City is the jewel in the crown of an extraordinary county. The Durham Dales and Vale of Durham are diverse landscapes, dotted with market towns and picturesque villages. The Durham Dales and North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty are home to moorland and forest, whilst the stunning Durham Coast begs to be explored."
In the city of Durham, the cathedral stands on a bluff high above the River Wear.
