Barnard Castle, or "Barney", is the historic gateway to Teesdale, full of fascinating old shops and a wonderful centre for antique collectors. There are associations with Charles Dickens and Sir Walter Scott. In the town is the magnificent The Bowes Museum with internationally famous collections, including works by Goya, El Greco and Canaletto. There are beautiful gardens here, and at Eggleston Hall and ancient Raby Castle. Nearby Cockfield is the birthplace of Jeremiah Dixon, surveyor of the Mason-Dixon Line in North America.
