Durham Museum and Heritage Centre, St Mary-le-Bow, North Bailey, Durham, County Durham, DH1 3ET

St Mary-le-Bow was once the parish church of North Bailey, closed in 1968, and now leased to the Bow Trust who run it as a museum of local and social history of the City of Durham. The building has medieval origins but was restored in the 17th century following the collapse of the tower. It is Grade I listed and contains fine woodwork influenced by Bishop John Cosin. The Museum has displays and collections from the 17th century to the present day, including splendid stained glass panels of Cecily de Neville and the Duke of York, parents of Richard III, originally from Brancepeth Castle. The Museum has some children's activities and a selection of replica brasses for children to do their own rubbings (small charge for rubbings).
