Experience a real sense of your past at Beamish, and discover what life was like in North East England in the 1820s, 1910s and 1940s.

Beamish is a living, working museum, set in 300 acres of beautiful Durham countryside. Costumed folk bring to life the Town, Pit Village, Home Farm and Pockerley Old Hall.

Experience firsthand how the Industrial Revolution transformed agricultural life in the region.

The buildings you see at Beamish are not replicas, but have been brought, brick by brick, from around the region and rebuilt to give visitors a real sense of history.

Throughout the year Beamish hosts an exciting programme of events, The Great North Festival of Transport, a Georgian Fair, The Great North Festival of Agriculture and much more besides, including a whole season of Christmas!

Tickets to Beamish are valid for 12 months from the date of purchase for an unlimited number of daytime visits to the Museum.
