Beamish is a small village within Hell Hole Wood, and is home to Beamish Museum, an open-air facility that replicates a northern town throughout the 20th century.
The museum features 1820s Pockerly, with gardens, the old hall, a waggonway, and even a Medieval church from Eston.
Other featured sections of the open-air museum include a 1900s town, pit village, colliery, and a 1940s farm. Each section is painstakingly detailed, with knowledgable staff and demonstrations.
Beamish’s open-air museum is one of the can’t-miss locations in the North East, and promises a day filled with history, fun, and family.
