What's the weather like in Durham? Also, concerning actually getting there, is it possible to fly from Southampton airport to Durham airport? Would that be the best way to get from the south of England up to Durham?
In a way, I worry that Durham is too similar to where I live now- a quaint town type feel, nice cathedral, old buildings, small and compact. Is it easy to get around Durham?
Also, concerning applying there, as I plan to apply to universty post A-level, would it be stupid of me to apply with AAB if I don't manage AAA? Or would it be better just to accept that I'm not good enough and move on? I only ask because I'm taking a fourth A-level into my 'third year' of Sixth Form, and would be able to achieve the AAA in that way, but I'm not sure whether Durham would accept that as actually being good enough.
