About the Event

Beamish is a world famous open air museum, telling the story of life in North East England during the 1820s, 1900s, 1940s and 1950s. Explore the 1900s Town and see how families lived and worked in the years leading up to the First World War. See what’s cooking in the pit cottages, practise your handwriting in the school and visit the chapel. Don’t forget to say hello to the pit ponies in their stables! Discover how life was on the Home Front during the Second World War. Look out for the Land Girls and the Home Guard! Explore the 1950s Farm and discover the story of upland farming in the North East during the 1950s. Beamish Tramway, opened in 1973, serves to re-create the experience and atmosphere of tramway operation from an earlier generation, whilst providing an essential means of transport for visitors around the site. And finally no recreation of the history of North East England would be complete without a colliery and the people who worked and lived around it.
