The Bowes Museum is a beautiful place. A beautiful building in a lovely setting. There is something for everyone. The history of this couple who gave us this museum is facinating. Plus the changing exhibitions mean repeat visits are always different.

Staff very friendly gave us a leaflet of what to see and do with a layout of three floors. Could take your time looking around. Gardens were clean and manicured café well worth a visit and staff very friendly, only down side was the silver swan was missing as this was on loan at another venue.
