A beautiful building houses a fabulous display of items from teacups to ornaments to stunning works of art. Well signposted, easy to find and within easy reach of Barnard Castle town centre. Well worth a visit!

A visit takes about 3 hours to see all the interesting and exquisite artefacts on display. The history of the museum itself is both admirable yet very sad.

It was just to our taste, we expected to see more of the house. Whilst what we saw was lovely we expected to see more English products as the house is in Britain. Very little furniture on show. Tea room food was delicious.

Although a lovely museum the displays weren't really of great interest to us.

Visited the museum to see its star attraction, the silver swan, only to find it wasn't there but had been temporarily shipped to another location. This wasn't indicated on the offer , and coincidentally it's return date was the day after the Groupon voucher expired... hmmmmmm! Unfortunately it's incidents like this that loose my faith in Groupon offers! ..
