Allium Interiors, Barnard CastleBarnard Castle is well renowned for its excellent range of antiques shops, many of which are located on 'The Bank', a steep street leading downhill from the Market Cross, lined with early 16th and 17th century buildings.  Together the shops can offer antiques hunters a tremendous selection of furniture, books, decorative items, clocks, cutlery, silver and jewellery.

Alongside the antiques shops there is a wide array of independent shops, including beautiful contemporary home and gift shops, vintage home and clothing stores, a traditional sweet shop, a chocolate shop, country wear shops, stationers, shops selling local produce and delicatessens.
