Durham May Be Voted Britain's Favourite Cathedral
Durham Cathedral is no stranger to accolades and awards

Durham Cathedral may soon be declared to be the nation’s favourite. Our city’s stunning building has been nominated for this accolade by LandLove Magazine.

In the LandLove Magazine Awards 2016, Durham Cathedral will face stiff competition from the breathtakingly beautiful cathedrals of a number of other cities including Salisbury, Lincoln, Hereford, Canterbury, Ely and Wells. Durham Cathedral is asking all its admirers to vote online to help it clinch the prestigious award.

The LandLove Magazine Awards have been running for three years. There are twelve categories in which the public can vote, including Britain’s favourite seaside town and Britain’s favourite nature reserve as well as Britain’s favourite cathedral.

The LandLove Magazine Awards aim to “celebrate the very best things about the British countryside.”

Ruth Robson, head of marketing and events at Durham Cathedral, said,

“We are delighted that Durham Cathedral has been nominated as Britain’s favourite cathedral.”

“Not only is Durham Cathedral one of Britain’s most iconic buildings, but it is a place that many people call home.”

“We encourage everyone who loves Durham Cathedral to support our campaign to become Britain’s favourite cathedral in the LandLove Magazine Awards.”

To vote for Durham Cathedral, go to www.landlove.com/awards and cast your vote before 2nd January 2017.

Anybody who votes will have the chance to win a £300 voucher from Wigwam Holidays, which can be used on any Wigwam Holidays break.

Durham Cathedral is no stranger to awards and accolades. It was recently placed in the top twenty of Britain’s favourite attractions and in 2011 readers of The Guardian newspaper chose it as their favourite British building.

In 1986, the cathedral, along with Durham Castle, Palace Green and Prebends Bridge, was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Even the Cathedral’s Undercroft Restaurant recently ranked highly in a Soil Association survey. The Durham Cathedral in Lego project, meanwhile, has won two awards and it may win another.
