Tudors: the Family and Faith in Durham

16 February 2018
Friday 16 February to Saturday 9 June

This fascinating exhibition in the Open Treasure Collections Gallery draws on the extensive collections held at the Cathedral. From the Dissolution of the Monasteries, to the founding of the Church of England and the Reformation, institutions like Durham Cathedral were significantly shaped by the actions of this extraordinary royal family. Their impact continues to be felt even to the present day.

Tracing the fascinating stories of monumental figures such as Henry VIII, Mary I and Elizabeth I, this exhibition focuses on the Tudor dynasty’s link to Durham, the changes wrought during each of their reigns and their impact on life at the Cathedral.

Visitors to The Tudors can also enjoy access to the Open Treasure exhibition spaces.
Open Monday to Saturday, 10.00am – 5.00pm (last entry 4.00pm) and Sundays, 12.30pm – 5.00pm (last entry 4.00pm)

Tickets: £2.50 - £7.50 (under 5s free, family ticket £17.50) available from the Visitor Desk in the Cathedral and in advance from www.durhamcathedral.co.uk/visit/what-to-visit/open-treasure/book
