Queen Victoria in Paris

Saturday, 24th March, 2018 at 10:00AM

At The Bowes Museum, Newgate, Barnard Castle, Co Durham. DL12 8NP

The Museum is one of only four venues in the UK - and the only one in the North of England - to stage Queen Victoria in Paris, an exhibition of watercolours commissioned by Queen Victoria as a souvenir of her momentous 10-day state visit to Paris in August 1855, generously loaned by Her Majesty The Queen from the Royal Collection. The paintings provide both a fascinating record and a lasting legacy of the opulence, pomp and pageantry surrounding the trip.
