World-famous, and a great attraction for the whole family, Beamish is an open-air museum set in 300 acres of beautiful County Durham countryside.
Costumed characters bring the Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian history of the North East to life as they stoke fires, bake bread, plough the fields, and weave blankets. You can ride around the site by old bus or tram, or explore on foot. Learn about life in the mines, the development of printing techniques, and the simple way of life for people living in the rural communities of the north. The grounds of Beamish include original buildings such as Home Farm and Pockerley Old Hall, alongside recreations filled with original objects and artefacts.
