Our day begins at Auckland Castle, palace of the Prince Bishops of Durham for almost 900 years until 2010. Our guided tour will include the paintings of Jacob and his twelve sons by the Spanish master Francisco de Zurbarán, and Martyrs the subtle and thought-provoking video installation by Bill Viola in the Castle chapel.

Yves Saint Laurent: Style is Eternal at the Bowes Museum is Britain's first comprehensive exhibition examining the French designer’s work and life. 50 key pieces make the journey from Paris to County Durham to show how he empowered women with his application of men's tailoring, and demonstrate the acknowledged influence of artists such as Mondrian in his designs. We will also have a guided tour of the permanent collection at the Bowes.

£45 (£42 for National Art Pass holders), includes coach transport, all admissions, coffee and lunch.
