Event Details

Have you ever wondered what hidden treasures are kept in the Cathedral Library? 

The medieval library room accessed via a winding spiral staircase is located high above the main body of the Cathedral and is over 500 years old. Join the Cathedral archivist to find out about some of her favourites from our collection of over 6000 books and archives dating back to the 10th century. This will be a chance to see items that are too large or fragile to bring out for public tours.
