JOURNEY TIME FROM TEESSIDE*
THINGS TO DO
Experience amazing sights, sounds, smells and delicious tastes as the past comes to life.
Beamish is unique – their objects aren’t locked away in glass cases, this is hands-on history! Step into the past and explore the 350 acre site, as Beamish tells the story of the people of North East England in the 1820s, 1900s and 1940s. Taste traditional food from a coal-fired range, hop on board a tram or steam train, play schoolyard games together and pop into the Co-op shops.

Christmas – Discover the amazing seasonal sights, sounds, smells and delicious tastes of Christmas past. Experience the magic of a traditional Christmas as you join in the celebrations at 1820s Pockerley Old Hall, 1900s Town, 1900s Pit Village and 1940s Farm.
Make sure to use the vintage trams and buses to get around Beamish. It is a great experience but also allows for a rest from walking.
