Part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Durham Cathedral is cherished for magnificent Romanesque architecture, the shrine of St Cuthbert and the tomb of the Venerable Bede.

Durham Cathedral is a place of worship, welcome and hospitality at the heart of the city. Open Treasure is the world class exhibition experience housed within the country’s most intact set of monastic buildings. Visitors can journey through the medieval Monks’ Dormitory and Great Kitchen while discovering the Cathedral’s superb collections in permanent and temporary exhibitions. Interactive displays bring the Cathedral’s past to life, while artwork from the Cathedral’s outreach projects connects it to the wider community.
