Durham Cathedral  Official Instagram account for Durham Cathedral, founded in 1093 and UNESCO World Heritage Site

Saint Cuthbert’s coffin was carried on a long, winding journey before settling in Durham. From Lindisfarne, it travelled around the region to Chester-le-Street, before finally stopping in Durham in 995, where the Cathedral was eventually built. Now you can see this fantastically preserved 1320 year-old wooden coffin in our exhibition space #OpenTreasure

From a recent review on Tripadvisor: "Waited an age to visit here. Awe inspiring. Had to sit down for a while to take it all in." Do you remember how you felt on your first visit to the Cathedral?
