Experience a real sense of your past at Beamish and discover what life was like in North East England in Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian times.
Beamish is a living, working museum, set in 300 acres of County Durham countryside. Costumed demonstrators bring to life the Edwardian Town and Pit Village, complete with original drift mine. At Home Farm and Pockerley Old Hall, experience firsthand how the Industrial revolution transformed agricultural life in the region.
A delicious taste of the past is on offer from our latest exhibit, the Bakery, which is getting ready to open its doors. Joseph Herron, Baker and Confectioner, will be officially launched on 12th September in our Edwardian Town.
The buildings you see at Beamish are not replicas, but have been reconstructed brick-by-brick to give visitors a real sense of history. You'll find a vast collection of objects, photographs and ephemera at the Regional Resource Centre, which can be accessed by appointment.
Throughout the year Beamish hosts an exciting programme of events, from a Georgian Fair to the Great North Steam Fair and much more besides, including spooky Halloween events and a whole season of Christmas!
Tickets to Beamish are valid for 12 months from your first visit, so you can pay just once and come back for a whole year FREE!
