Beamish is a world-famous open-air museum, telling the story of life in North East England during the 1820s, 1900s and 1940s. Experience a real sense of your past at Beamish, a living, working museum, set in over 300 acres of beautiful Durham countryside. A mixture of original, translocated and replica buildings, a huge collection of artefacts, working vehicles and equipment as well as livestock. On our return we will stop in the historic walled city of York.
Your comfort is our priority and all travel arrangements have been made with this in mind. Comfort stops will always be planned en route for lunch/refreshments. We will arrive at the hotel in the late afternoon, where your luggage will be taken to your room (unless otherwise specified) and you will have plenty of time to freshen up before the evening meal. Return travel will follow a similar schedule.
