The Collections Gallery, Open Treasure

An exhibition of the weird and wonderful beasts and monsters which have fascinated people from earliest times. From illustrations of lions and dragons in medieval manuscripts, to early printed books of natural history which feature sea serpents and wyverns alongside images of the rhinoceros or elephant, and the ‘evidence’ presented to prove the existence of such fantastic creatures as griffins and unicorns, this display will capture the imagination!

Tickets: £2.50 – £7.50 available from the Visitor Desk in the Cathedral, the Open Treasure Welcome Desk, and in advance from www.durhamcathedral.co.uk/open-treasure/book
