125 years: The Bowes Museum, a celebration...

Hello lovelies!

If you're from the North and you're looking for something to do tomorrow, then why not visit the beautiful Bowes Museum?  Tomorrow from 10am-6pm, they are celebrating their 125 years, and it's going to be quite the party! Live music (including Sunderland stars The Lake Poets), a picnic in the grounds, chat to John and Joséphine, children's activities, talks and tours and much, much more!  And the best part?  It's only £2.50 for adults (museum admission included) and free entry for accompanying children!  That's a whopping saving and a great excuse to spend the day exploring an amazing place!


While you're there, you could check out the amazing Joséphine Bowes exhibition.  She was such an integral part of the museum's creation, and the exhibition is really very interesting!  I loved looking at her fashion influences and the things she loved!




Or you could reimagine Wedgwood with Michael Eden.  Imagine having a vase in your home that depicted X Factor's Honey G, or the cast of Strictly Come Dancing!



You could learn about David Garrick and the theatre, or you could simply wander and take in the immense grandeur of the permanent exhibits at the museum, seeing the life that John and Josephine lived.





If fashion is your thing, there's always lots to see in the amazing Fashion and Textiles department...





But you must make sure that you save time to go and visit the beautiful Silver Swan, the jewel in the crown of the Bowes Museum...


...and it's always worth a wander around the amazing gardens!




If all of that makes you hungry, you could always visit the wonderful Café Bowes for some scrumptious food (the fruit scones are my favourite!!).  My tummy is rumbling just thinking about them!



With all of this on offer, what is there to stop you?  I can guarantee you'll have a really amazing day, and hopefully the museum will hold a special place in your hearts forever, just like it has in mine!

  1. Beautiful photos, it really does seem like an inspiring place. I've only ever been once and it was a flying visit years ago so really need to go back and enjoy it properly!
