Experience amazing sights, sounds, smells and delicious tastes as the past comes to life. Beamish is unique - our objects aren't locked away in glass cases, this is hands-on history! Step into the past and explore our 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. Come back time and time again with your Beamish Unlimited Pass, which allows 12 months free entry to the museum from your visit - including all day time special events!

Came here after remembering it fondly from childhood. I'd say Beamish is made up of 4 main sections- we did 3. The Colliery Village, Main Street and older 1800s area- missing the 1930s/40s farm. The atmosphere in the park is fantastic- it feels like you've...More

its £19 per adult..we got some vouchers from a place called south causey inn where we went for food..them vouchers then enabled us to get a yearly pass FREE..i would imagine you could save a few pounds by pre booking.
