The story of Britain's first saint told in an historic building
New graphic displays telling the story of Britain's first saint and the history of the cathedral. Visitors travel from Roman times to the present on an interactive journey. The new Visitor Centre and exhibition displays have been designed to both harmonise and sympathise with the 1077 abbey and the chapter house. Whilst the new displays are impactful, the designs and colours have been carefully chosen so not to be too intrusive and to blend in with the cathedral's new branding.
