Barnard Castle

Click below to view my videos of this bustling, friendly market town in the heart of Teesdale.  Perfect for a day out whether you visit the castle, go for a walk along the River Tees, visit the award winning Baroque French chateau that is the magnificent Bowes museum or stroll around the many independent shops and treat yourself to Teesdale tea.  The castle itself goes back to the 12th century and is a medieval masterpiece in which Richard III endowed further when he became Lord Barnard in 1471.
