Gibside, Tyne & Wear
We're now open for longer on Friday and Saturday evenings. Explore the gardens, stay for a pint with the pooch and catch up with friends until 9pm. All of the grounds are open, except the chapel and stables which close at 6pm, so perhaps it's round to Strawberry Castle play area for an adventure? Then back to the cafe for a relaxing drink or two. (Free for National Trust members or normal admission charges apply).
