Durham: Day 3

So this is the last of my Durham diaries posts as this was the day that we came home. This is going to be a pretty short post because we only had half a day there, but I hope that you enjoy reading it regardless. There are still plenty of photos to look through! If you haven’t seen day 1 and day 2 then I would click on the links and read them first, so that you are up to speed with the trip so far. 


The view from the Riverside Kitchen

We woke up early and had breakfast in our holiday cottage, which I really enjoyed. We had to leave by 11am so we spent the morning packing the car up and tidying the cottage ready to leave. I was so sad to leave the little house, I loved staying in it and I will definitely be looking into staying in more holiday cottages. I much preferred it to a city centre hotel! 


We didn’t want to go home straight away, so we went back into Durham for a couple of hours before heading back. We went back to the riverview kitchen for a hot chocolate as we knew that we loved the cafe, and as always it didn’t disappoint. I won’t go on too much about this though as I wrote a whole post reviewing the cafe, so click here to be redirected there. Definitely my favourite cafe that we went to in Durham! 


After that, we had a little wander around and came across a whole area where we hadn’t been to yet. I’m not sure what it was called but it looked like quite a new renovation with some chain restaurants (like a Wetherspoons and Nando’s) and a theatre. We also saw what looks like a gorgeous cocktail bar called “The butterfly room”, where if I come back I will definitely be going to. It was shut when we passed but we had a peek inside and it looks completely my aesthetic, with not only a flower wall but also numerous pink neon signs. It looks so fab! 

Before we headed home, we popped into “Be tempted”, which is a little cupcake cafe on saddler street. We saw it the day before but it was closed, but we knew that we needed to give it a try before we went home. We bought a box of 4 cupcakes to take home, which were so nice, and I also bought my best friend one of her birthday presents from there. I’m really glad we got to go before we left, and I would recommend it for takeaway cupcakes in Durham as the one I had tasted so good.


So that was my Durham getaway, and I hope you enjoyed reading about what I got up to. It was a pretty quick trip with only 2 nights but it was perfect and I really enjoyed myself. I definitely want to explore more UK cities in 2019 and obviously post about them. As always thank you so much for reading this and if you use any of my recommendations please let me know, I would love to see!
