Beamish Unlimited

Under the government’s COVID-19 national lockdown, the museum is currently closed.

We will be reopening our outdoor areas only from 12th April 2021, under Step 2 of the government’s COVID-19 roadmap. ALL visitors will need to pre-book an entry timeslot online in advance of their visit, including Friends of Beamish members and Beamish Unlimited Pass holders. Under Step 2 we cannot yet open our indoor attractions and exhibits, or run our transport (except our wheelchair accessible bus which will run on an on-call basis).

Timeslots are available to book online for visits from 12th April to 16th May. Please read our essential information before booking your visit

A huge, heartfelt thank you to everyone for your continuing support, it really does mean the world to us. Beamish is a charity and 95 per cent of our income is from our visitors, including ticket sales, retail and catering.

The safety of our visitors, staff and volunteers remains our number one priority and we are looking forward to welcoming you to the museum again soon.
