Transport in Durham

Entry to Durham via railway is a spectacular affair, as trains coming from the south cross a Victorian viaduct high above the city’s terraced houses. The East Coast Main Line connects the city to Edinburgh and London. It is served by two airports – Newcastle Airport and Durham Tees Valley Airport – both lying approximately 25 miles from the city. The modern incarnation of the ancient Great North Road formerly passed to the west of Durham as what is now the A167. It is now to be found on the other side of the city as the A1 (M).
