Be part of history on group visits to Beamish Museum

Take a tram ride back in time and become immersed in real, living history.

Award-wining Beamish Museum is a must-see part of any group visit to the North of England. Take a walk down an Edwardian cobbled street, try tasty food from times gone by and chat to our cheerful costumed engagers – there’s so much to discover!

Experience life as a Land Girl, go underground as a miner, explore the world of 1800s quilting or have a go at fun 50s activities in the welfare hall.

Set in 350 beautiful acres, there’s something for everyone at Beamish Museum including a year-long exciting events programme.

On weekdays groups can enjoy day admission and Dainty Bites (light buffet lunch including a selection of sandwiches, crisps, cake, and tea/coffee) served in a private room overlooking the award-winning Town. Additional charge applies for Dainty Bites package, see link below for details.
