Durham University has had its home in the castle since 1832. In the centre of Durham is the Market place which holds regular markets. located close to Market Place is Durham Indoor Market which is a permanent indoor market.
Such is Durham's history that the whole of the centre of Durham was been declared a conservation area in 1968, and extended in 1980. Along with the Castle and Cathedral, visitors to the city can take in the splendour of other Listed Buildings including Crook Hall, Elvet Bridge, Kepier Hospital, the Church of St Mary-le-Bow, St John's Chapel and the Town Hall and Guildhall.

Located in north west England, close to the border with Scotland, Carlisle is an historic city centred on its castle, museum and cathedral. In 1823 a canal was built to Fisher's Cross (Port Carlisle) to transport goods produced in the city. This enabled other industrial centres such as Liverpool to link with Carlisle via the Solway. However, this did not last and when the canal operators ran into financial difficulty the waterway was filled in and replaced by railways. Carlisle became a major railway centre on the West Coast Main Line with connections to the east. At one time seven companies used Carlisle Citadel railway station. Before the building of the Citadel Station the city had several other railway stations, including London Road station.
For those who appreciate good food, every August the Carlisle Food Fair is held in the pedestrianised area of the city centre. It plays host to produce from across the continent and features local produce including Cumberland sausage, Cumberland sauce and Cumberland Mustard. Carlisle is roughly 25 miles to the north of the northern edge of the Lake District, which is home to some of Britain's best restaurants.
