Durham ranked #1 and again at #1

Durham University was voted to have the number 1 most beautiful university building in the UK, with its University College (also known as Durham Castle), by Times Higher Education. The Castle is Norman and built by a cousin (I believe...) of William the Conqueror. It is the oldest continually used higher education building in the world.

Durham University's new Law School building is voted the number 1 most impressive Law School building in the world(!).

So two more reasons why Durham University is the place to be...

Both buildings are really very nice, though obviously in very different ways. The city, too, is very pretty, even if not overflowing with obviously great restaurants. (Many nice traditional British pubs, though.) Do visit if you can!
