If you are looking for somewhere to go in the rain Durham is always worth a visit. Ushaw College, a former seminary about three miles from Durham City is one of Augustus Pugin's masterpieces and has a very reasonable and warm refectory with excellent food! Ushaw is open to the public from 10 O'clock until 4 O'clock daily.
I'd love to visit Durham - it's a pity that it's outside the comforting embrace of the M25, though!
