As a previous reviewer has stated, I don't think the Lindisfarne Gospels are still housed in the Palace Green Library but that said the building and area of Palace Green is still most definitely well worth checking out.
The Palace Green Library is an awesome looking Grade II Listed building, stone built, very photogenic, makes for some great photographic opportunities and is most definitely well worth checking out if you're in the area, its a building that adds to the joy of walking around Palace Green.

We visited May BH weekend and the Gospels book has been moved and is no longer at the Palace Green Library. Still a lovely place but no gospels

Well worth taking the time to look around Durham Cathedral and Castle if you're in Durham. There are regular tours, but best to do a Castle Tour during University holidays (when the student's aren't there), as the Castle is also the university's halls of residence. So much history here, though probably a bit boring for kids.

Illustrated Gospels are superb, although temporary exhibits can be expensive. Great to see these things "in the flesh".

What an opportunity to view a document created and maintained in the northeast of England - shame it was vandalised by Henry 8th to acquire jeweled covers, the visit as per usual is well presented by the staff at the Palace Green Library

The gospels were in the library for a short time last year. The exhibition was well laid out and the signing was informative. because there was restricted room it was necessary to book a time to visit. The museum staff were not permitted to turn the pages and the chosen one was not the most striking. There is a wish to bring the gospels back.may it succeed!
