Durham Cathedral Museum Tours

5 August @ 10:00 am - 29 August @ 2:00 pm

£2 – £27.50

This unique behind-the-scenes experience tells the stories of the cathedral, including what life was like for the monks who once lived here. The tour will start in the cloister, and lead you through the medieval buildings giving you the chance to explore the Great Kitchen and the Monks’ Dormitory. Once part of the Benedictine monastery, these extraordinary spaces now house the museum collections, such as the remarkable treasures of St Cuthbert.

Step into over 1000 years of stories from pilgrims who made special journeys here, residents of Durham City, the people who lived and worshipped here. Enjoy a 90 minute tour led by a specially-trained guide with plenty of time to ask questions. Tours take place daily (except Fridays), at regular intervals throughout the day.
