About Durham and Places to Visit
Mercury Jets provides private jet charter flights to and from Durham.
In the northeast of England, on the rocky bank of the River Weir, lies the picturesque city of Durham, one of the most beautiful cities in Britain. It is the administrative center and home to 48 thousand people. Besides that, tourists from all over the world come to Durham to see its unique natural sights and an ancient cathedral which was the prototype of Hogwarts Castle in the Harry Potter movies.
In and around Durham, there are many unique historical and cultural treasures from the Viking Age and the lives of the local monks. Durham Castle is not far from the center, which today is part of the university and is the third oldest university in Britain. What’s more, it is a World Heritage Site for Romanesque architecture. There is also a Museum of Far Eastern Art and Archaeology with unique exhibits from different epochs. For a good acquaintance with local history, there are also fragments of fortress walls, numerous bridge constructions, straight narrow streets of the center, and ancient houses of the townspeople. In addition, there are often festivals on the waterfront where you can enjoy magical music.
Nineteen miles from downtown Durham is Newcastle International Airport (NCL, EGNT), the second busiest airport in Northern England. It handles about 5 million passengers year-round and is excellent for private charters to/from Durham.
