The city centre of Durham is surrounded on three sides by a meander in the River Wear forming a peninsular at the base of which is the Market place and main shopping area of the city with a good mix of national and local independent stores plus many resturants and cafes to suit all tastes and pockets. Add to this the buskers and entertainers and it is certainly a lively. All this creates interesting contrasts with the hustle and bustle of the Shops and the peace and tranquility of the river bank just a few metres apart.
