A city that changed hands several times in battles between the English and the Scots, and your first city since Newcastle. Quite a bit smaller than Newcastle, it also has an interesting castle and cathedral. Other assorted buildings of historical interest like the Old Town Hall are made of fine red sandstone. Beer fans will not want to miss out a couple of drops, as this is the centre for the Theakston’s Brewery. See the Tullie House Museum for a fine collection of Roman remains. The inner city has been pedestrianised making exploration enjoyable around the market square.
