Tudors: The Family and Faith in Durham

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.
