Fodor's Review

Delightful views are the reward of a short stroll along the River Wear's leafy banks, especially as you cross this 17th-century stone footbridge, reached from the southern end of Palace Green. J.M.W. Turner adored the view from here and painted a celebrated scene of Durham from the bridge.
