Durham Cathedral is the greatest Norman building in England, perhaps even in Europe. It is cherished not only for its architecture but also for its incomparable setting. Slightly further afield is Beamish Museum, Britain's favourite open air museum, set in over 300 acres of beautiful countryside, vividly recreates life in the North of England in the early 1800s and 1900s.

There is also The Bowes Museum at Barnard Castle, about 30 minutes drive South from the Guest House. A superb museum housed in a custom-made Italian style 19th Century palazzo.
