Kynren - An Epic Tale of England & a visit to Durham
Late morning join the coach for an included visit to Durham. Durham is home to England's most beautiful Romanesque cathedral, a huge castle, and, surrounding them both, a cobweb of hilly, cobbled streets, a beautiful city with streets packed with history, culture and stunning architecture. Guarded by the River Wear, Durham City with its dramatic skyline never fails to impress. Return to the hotel to enjoy an early meal prior to setting off for the Kynren show. Take your seat as dusk settles over the vast, still lake and the expectant audience of 8,000 falls silent and the epic show begins........
Visits to Barnard Castle & Raby Castle (entry included)
Enjoy a visit this morning to Raby Castle, one of England's finest medieval castles. A seriously impressive fortress standing proud and defiant with a history of almost one thousand years. The Victorian and Regency interiors are as opulent as the exterior is imposing, showcasing porcelain and sculpture ranging form Victorian copper cooking utensils to The Raby Tapestry. NB there are steps within the castle (41 steps to the upper floor) and entrance is also included to the Deer Park where you may spot the herds of Deer and Longhorn cattle. Head off to the charming Teesdale market town of Barnard Castle. The town is a haven for the discerning who are sure to enjoy the many antique shops, independent retailers and cafes.
