Jump on a train (I think it costs about £7 return) and its about 15-20 mins away.

At Durham I was told it takes about 15 minutes, and costs about £3. The students told me that they don't go there very often - once a term maybe.

Are you joking? :confused: That's so not a good thing...I was relying on that to counteract the arguement that there's no nightlife at Durham. I can't live without clubbing!

Its 15mins on the train with a fare of about £3.

You can drive there in 20mins as well up the A1 in reasonable traffic.

Serendipity, I live in Newcastle and in a car its maybe 45minutes, and you can get weekend/friday passes for the train between Newcastle and Durham. Also it's not £7 it was about £5 return to get there, when I last went from Newcastle and takes around 20-30mins on the train.

its 15mins on the train, and its only about 15 miles north of Durham so it won't take more than 30mins to drive to Newcastle...

depends what time of the day it is - if you choose to drive on a friday night, then you'll struggle to make under 45mins on the usual A1 route

during the day, its an easy 20min drive

Shopping would be my worry!

As of 4:07 this afternoon, about 15 mins at a cost of £4.60. How often students go there differs. I come from a small town so Durham is like a metropolis to me ! It's generally more than enough. I've been out in Newcastle twice since I got here last October, and been shopping a couple more times. But to students from big cities, Durham seems small, so I believe that they tend to go out in Newcastle a lot more often.

I guess that wasn't a cheap day return using a young persons railcard?
