Durham for cathedral lovers

Nearly a thousand years old, Durham Cathedral is one of the most spectacular houses of worship in the world. During that time the Cathedral has seen many changes, including a stint as a prison during the English Civil War. Oliver Cromwell used it to imprison thousands of Scottish captives from the Battle of Dunbar. Durham Cathedral houses the famous Cathedral Library, originally founded in 635 by Lindisfarne Monks! The library now houses important religious and political documents, including a copy of the Magna Carta.
