Today is the last chance to see the Lindisfarne Gospels at Durham Cathedral. It brings to an end a three month exhibition in the centre of Durham City.
Almost 100,000 people have been to see the gospels, which will be returned to the British Library later this week.
They attracted visitors from across the world and have brought in millions of pounds to the region.
