Meetings & Corporate Hospitality


The Bowes Museum is an impressive venue for a wide range of business events, combining a peaceful historic setting with fully accessible modern meeting facilities, well located, close to the A66 and A1.

Choose from a range of beautiful spaces for 10 to 240 guests, providing the perfect settings for all business events including conferences, training and rewards and recognition events. All guests are welcome to explore the museum throughout the day, so you can make the most of your time out of the office, returning refreshed and inspired.  We can arrange tours, practical activities in the museum and grounds and exclusive ‘behind the scenes' experiences to help you have fun and harness your team's creativity.

We pride ourselves on delivering unique corporate hospitality and networking events. Stand out from the crowd by treating your valued clients and colleagues to a drinks reception or dinner amongst captivating works of art, and a private tour of the latest exhibition.

"Everyone really loved it- really something special. The setting blew people away! The tour guide was brilliant, very entertaining and informative. Thank you for looking after everyone so well and organising such a memorable event." Anne, Glaxo Smith Kline
