Durham Castle is a Norman castle which has been wholly occupied since 1840 by University College, Durham. The castle stands on top of a hill above the River Wear on Durham''s peninsula, opposite Durham Cathedral.

During the Second World War, it was used as a command and observation post for the Royal Air Force when its original use was recognised.

Durham Castle is jointly designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site with Durham Cathedral, a short distance across Palace Green.
