Bowes Museum (The)

Purpose-built in the 19th century, this historic building still contains many of the magnificent treasures that were purchased before its public opening in 1892. You’ll be gobsmacked by outstanding pieces like the 240-year-old Silver Swan and paintings by Canaletto and Goya. Past exhibitions have also featured high-profile brands like Yves Saint Laurent and Laura Ashley, and Roald Dahl’s illustrator Quentin Blake is curating one on the BFG next year.
