Beamish Museum, set in 350 acres of beautiful County Durham countryside, is a must-see addition to any visit to North East England and a great way to explore the rich heritage of the region
This award-winning museum takes you back in time to experience the unforgettable sights, sounds, smells and delicious tastes of days gone by. Beamish is a place to discover fascinating stories, to visit homes, shops and workplaces and meet costumed folk from the past.
Look out for Land Girls and the Home Guard at the 1940s Farm, which shares the story of the Home Front during the Second World War. In the 1900s Town pop into the Co-op shops, find out who lives in Ravensworth Terrace and enjoy a pint at the Sun Inn. Experience life in the 1900s Pit Village and Colliery, see what’s cooking in the cottages, discover life underground at the drift mine and sample tasty fish and chips from Davy’s Fried Fish Shop. Explore life in Georgian times at Pockerley Old Hall and enjoy a ride on a steam train through the Georgian landscape on Pockerley Waggonway.
