The Treasures of St Cuthbert represent some of the most significant surviving Anglo-Saxon artefacts in the UK, offering a remarkable insight into the life of St Cuthbert one of North East England’s best-loved saints.
Now these exquisite treasures are going on permanent display in Open Treasure, including the preserved Anglo-Saxon wooden coffin, embroidered vestments and St Cuthbert’s stunning pectoral cross.
Visit Open Treasure from Saturday 29 July to see the Treasures of St Cuthbert on display in the spectacular Great Kitchen, one of only two surviving medieval monastic kitchens in the UK, before returning to Durham Cathedral to see the magnificent Shrine of St Cuthbert, which continues to attract thousands of pilgrims each year.
Visitors to The Treasures of St Cuthbert can enjoy access to the Open Treasure exhibition spaces, located in the most intact surviving medieval monastic buildings in the UK, along with an exciting rolling programme of exhibitions in the Open Treasure Collections Gallery.
