Barnard Castle is a market town in Teesdale, County Durham, England. Step off the beaten path and head to Jervaulx Abbey and Green Howards Museum. Escape the urban bustle at Teesdale Alpacas and Yorkshire Three Peaks Walk. Explore Barnard Castle's surroundings by going to Killhope Lead Mining Museum (in Cowshill), Bishop Auckland (Escomb Saxon Church & Auckland Castle) and Saint Thomas C of E Church (in Stanhope). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at The Bowes Museum, delve into the distant past at Egglestone Abbey, step into the grandiose world of Barnard Castle, and admire the sheer force of West Burton Falls.
