Coronavirus Update

Beamish Unlimited

The museum is currently closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The health and wellbeing of our visitors, staff and volunteers remains, as always, our number one priority. We will be continuing to monitor and follow all Government instructions and will keep everyone updated.

Our Great North Steam Fair and Horses at Work events, which were due to take place in April, have been postponed. We will be announcing new dates for these in due course. Full details of changes to our events and activities programme will be updated on our website and social media.

We thank you all for your understanding during these difficult and unprecedented times for everyone.

We’ll be keeping in touch with everyone through our social media and website. You can also sign up to our e-newsletter here

In the meantime, if you have any further queries, please email

We look forward to welcoming you back to Beamish.
