Durham Cathedral has been a place of learning for almost a millennium.

The Community of St Cuthbert settled in Durham in 995 bringing with them their most precious manuscripts and scholarly works.

In 1093, the Normans settled in Durham, establishing a Benedictine Community of Monks, and continued this tradition of learning and spiritual enlightenment.

Today the Cathedral offers many opportunities for learning whether it be through formal sessions for schools that work to the national curriculum, attending a lecture or workshop as an interested adult, or visiting the Cathedral Library.
