Open Treasure

Open Treasure is a major multi-phase development project which provides visitors to Durham Cathedral with an experience to match its international, cultural and historic value.

The first three-year phase of the project will tell the story of the previously ‘hidden’ claustral spaces; revealing their historical and architectural significance through the creation of a new exhibition route.

These new exhibition spaces will allow the Cathedral to display more of the treasures in its internationally important collection, which it currently lacks both the space and specialist facilities to do.

Watch our video with commentary from one of our project champions, architect George Clarke, to see how Open Treasure will transform Durham Cathedral.
