Durham Cathedral

See venue website for opening times

Free (suggested donation of £3), admission fee applies for Open Treasure exhibition

Durham Cathedral is one of the great buildings of Europe. Set grandly on a rocky promontory next to the Castle with the medieval city huddled below and the river sweeping round, the profile of the World Heritage Site is instantly recognisable to people travelling up and down the East Coast Main Line.

Durham Cathedral is the setting for regular worship and special services, concerts, exhibitions, learning activity and an array of special events.

It is also a place for reflection and private prayer to people of all faiths and to people of none. There are regular tours and self-guided trails are available in a variety of languages.

There is much to do and see, either as an individual or small party of family and friends; or as part of an organized group visit. The Cathedral Church itself is a place of huge historic significance and the Cloister and Claustral buildings offer more to explore including the Undercroft Restaurant and Cathedral Shop.
