A hidden treasure nestled amongst the wonderful farming and market towns and villages of Teeside, County Durham and commonly declared an area of outstanding natural beauty, we find the truly magnificent French Chateau style building that is the Bowes Museum. Purpose built by John and Josephine Bowes in the 19th Century in order to bring culture and the wider form of artwork to the local people, this wonderful historic building is now home to furniture, art and porcelain of international interest.

The building itself stands proudly in the historic market town of Barnard Castle where there is plenty to see and do. There are regular markets along with quality retail outlets and lots of interesting eateries to experience, as well as the stunning views of the County Durham countryside.

The museum is set over three floors and the artefacts are far too numerous to list. It is certainly worth a visit and there are plenty of accessible areas for those that need a wheelchair and there is a welcoming caf� for refreshments.

The surrounding gardens are picturesque and serene. You will be able to enjoy hundreds of specimen trees from all around the world, have a picnic, or merely stroll leisurely around the grounds.
