Map of Durham City

These maps both show Durham City. One is Durham as it might have looked in Tudor times, the other is a modern map (reproduced courtesy of Cityscape Maps Ltd.).

Have a good look at both maps and see if you can find these places on both maps:

  • St Nicholas Church
  • Durham Castle
  • Durham Cathedral
  • The Market Place

Now see if you can find two things that are the same on both maps, and two things that are different.

When you've finished, you should have a good idea of what Durham looked like in Tudor times.
