Barnard Castle

In the town centre, the octagonal Market cross, or Butter Market, served a number of purposes, dairy produce was sold here and it was also the town's lock up, Town Hall and Court House.

Blagraves House is the oldest house in Barnard Castle and has been made into a high class restaurant. It is situated at the centre of this historic market town's other main attractions, namely Bowes Museum, Egglestone Abbey and the Castle itself.
With its heavily beamed ceilings and large open fireplaces it has been playing host to weary traveller and businessman alike for some 500 years. So why not dine where Cromwell once dined and experience the atmosphere of this unique 15th Century building whether it be an important business meeting or a relaxing dinner with family or friends.

On Bank Holiday Barnard Castle holds a Farmers Market where Farmers & Fishmongers can sell their fresh produce. From beef to sausages, cheese to goats milk, potatoes to carrots & salmon to kippers, there are loads of fresh produce to buy and also to sample.
