We went to Beamish Museum in County Durham. Beamish is an open air museum which is set in the the Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian times. I have been a few times before but each time is a different experience and there are always events going on.


The tickets admits you to a year-round pass so it’s an absolute bargain, especially if you live locally. There was so refurbishment going on whilst we were there so the next time we go, there might be something new to visit! As well as an awesome nostalgic experience, it is also great to learn about lives of those who lived in that era.

As the museum is based outdoors, I would recommend going on a nice (or at least dry) day. When you get there, you feel completely immersed in to the setting, as if you’ve travelled back in time. There are people dressed in Victorian style garments, there are “evacuees” waving at us from an old fashion bus, the street signs and building are old fashioned.


The place is built like a small and very old town so there’s a “town centre” where you’ll find a bank, sweet shop, grocery shop and a garage. There’s a rail way station, village, school and a farm. The school and the sweet shop are my favourite, but I also highly recommend the houses which is fully decorated in authentic decor.

There are a row of houses where the poorer people lived and there are houses that were lived in by professionals such as dentist and solicitor. We took lots of pictures so you’ll see more of the museum in the next post. It such a great day out and I totally recommend it. Remember to pick a day that’s sunny and warm though!
