The City of Durham was, from 1974 to 2009, a non-metropolitan district of County Durham in northeast England, with the status of borough and city.

The district was formed on 1 April 1974 by the merger of the existing City of Durham and Framwelgate with Brandon and Byshottles Urban District and Durham Rural District. The district was abolished as part of the 2009 structural changes to local government in England when County Durham became a unitary authority.

Civil parishes

The central area of the City of Durham (the area covered by the pre-1974 City of Durham and Framwelgate) is not parished. Those parts of the district formerly part of Durham Rural District or Brandon and Byshottles Urban District are all parished. The current Brandon and Byshottles Parish Council is co-terminous with the pre-1974 UDC and has inherited some of its responsibilities (e.g. allotments).

Civil parishes in the district were:

Brandon and Byshottles
Cassop cum Quarrington
Croxdale and Hett
Framwellgate Moor
West Rainton
Witton Gilbert
