Pleasant towns and pretty villages dot the area - the historic town of Barnard Castle lies within easy reach, and boasts castle remains overlooking the town, as well as Bowes Museum. Built as an impressive French-style chateau, the museum houses a magnificant collection of fine and decorative art. Other places of interest are Raby Castle, Killhope Wheel, Beamish, High Force and Hamsterley Forest. The local village of Stanhope is home to the Durham Dales Centre with its tourist information centre.
