Day 1 Morning departure for the journey to Durham and the hotel for a four night stay.

Day 2 Today you will travel to the picturesque market town of Barnard Castle and to the Bowes Museum with its outstanding collections of art, fashion and design housed in a beautiful French-style public museum, set in gardens and parkland. During your visit we have included a cream tea.
