The Treasures of St Cuthbert

The Treasures of St Cuthbert

Durham Cathedral

A rare collection of some of the most significant surviving Anglo-Saxon artefacts in the UK, including St Cuthbert's preserved wooden coffin and his exquisite gold and garnet pectoral cross. Also on display will be the ivory comb and portable altar buried alongside St Cuthbert, Anglo-Saxon vestments gifted to his Shrine, and the original Sanctuary Ring.

See this extraordinary collection on permanent display in the stunning Great Kitchen with its distinctive octagonal rib-vaulted ceiling, one of only two surviving monastic kitchens in the UK.

Visitors to The Treasures of St Cuthbert can also enjoy access to the other Open Treasure exhibition spaces, including the spectacular Monks' Dormitory and the rolling programme of exhibitions in the Collections Gallery.
