The city centre is nice despite what some people on here have said. C'mon people! All you LSE applicants (and there are lots of you), could you really describe London as being 'pretty'? Or any big city for that matter....
Bham University is very leafy, clean, safe, and has some beautiful historic red brick buildings. There are shops, and even a Uni branch of Waterstones! The cross city line goes through The on-campus station, and Cadbury's World is nearby! Need I say more?
All in all, Durham feels more like a small town, with far less going on in the way of major cultural events or nightlife!
