There is much around Barnard Castle other than just the Josephine & John Bowes Museum (above). However since this is packed with more exhibts than anyone could see in three days there was little time to see anything else.

Lens Olympus 50mm F1.8 @F4

No matter. It was worth the journey just for this porcelain tiger made around 1700 by J. Arita. A (no flash) photographer friendly collection; note the exposure time.

Best painting: 'A Regatta on the Grand Canal' by Canaletto (1697 - 1768).
