    Escomb Church

    by JennEph Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the oldest churches to still be holding regular mass, its a mind-boggling experience to stand in the court yard of the church and close your eyes, imagining what took place on the same grounds as where you're standing.

    Raby Castle

    by JennEph Written Sep 2, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Again, worth the drive in the country. "Raby is one of the North of England's most impressive castles. Built in the 14th century by the Nevill family it has been home to Lord Bernard's family since 1626. The rooms display fine furnature, impressive artworks and elaborate architecture. You can also enjoy the deer park, gardens, carriage collection and woodland adventure playground." A breath-taking sight for sure!

    The Bowes Museum

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is most certainly worth taking a drive out in the country if possible. "The Bowes Museum, a magnificent French-style chateau...Opened in 1892, the Museum contains a collection of European fine and decorative art." Open daily between 11:00-17:00
