About the neighbourhood
There is a general dealers with off licence within 2 minutes of your front door and a leisure club with gym and indoor swimming pool just over the road. The railway and bus stations are within easy walking distance and Durham's impressive Gala Theatre complex is just round the corner. The Cathedral, Castle and University are a 10-minute walk away and the lovely boutique shops, restaurants and bars are within 5- minutes from the apartment.

The apartment benefits from a beautiful riverside setting, however please be aware that we are located within the city centre and close to the Cathedral, therefore subject to some external noise from the Cathedral bells, restaurants, bars and emergency vehicles.

Walk downhill from railway station, towards the City Centre, continue ahead at the main roundabout, over the river Wear, staying on the path leading up a slope. Cross the road towards the market place and walk down the slope turning right at main roundabout at the base of the slope. Continue through the traffic lights and look for Establishment café on your right hand side, St Andrew's Court is at the rear of the Establishment cafe.
