You will journey around the capital of the land of the Prince Bishops and taken through the Grand Romanesque Cathedral – often described to be the greatest Cathedral in England - explaining the architecture and history of the building before showing you the Open Treasures where the treasures of the Bishop of Durham have been gathered and curated for you to discover.
