Durham House was located in the Strand, west of Ivy Lane. It stood at the border between the Duchy of Lancaster and Westminster. Initially built for the bishops of Durham, the house was eventually owned by principal secretary to the monarch and chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, Sir Robert Cecil. A piece of land on the south side of The Strand and between York House and the Durham House gatehouse became the site of Cecil’s New Exchange, also named Britain’s Burse by James I at the opening ceremony in 1609.
