Group Visits

We offer excellent day admission rates for groups visiting in parties of fifteen or more!

The safety of our visitors, staff and volunteers is always our first priority and we continue to have a range of COVID-19 Secure measures in place. We ask that all visitors (unless exempt) wear a face covering when visiting Mahogany Drift Mine and on our transport. We also support the wearing of face coverings in all indoor spaces.

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.

NEW FOR 2022!

Our 1950s Front Street terrace is now open! Front Street terrace in The 1950s Town, which is part of our Remaking Beamish project, includes four new exhibits for visitors to explore.

At John’s Café, take a seat in the booths and eat delicious homemade ice cream whilst listening to the jukebox, or head to Middleton’s Quality Fish and Chips, where you can buy delicious fish and chips. At No. 2 Front Street you can see the replicated home of famous North East artist Norman Cornish, which will include an accessible art space. Visitors can even ensure they look the part with a trip to Elizabeth’s Hairdresser’s, where you’ll be able to get your hair done – 50s style!


In line with COVID-19 Secure safety guidance, we’ve introduced additional health and hygiene measures across the museum, with the safety of our visitors, staff and volunteers as our top priority.

We’ve been awarded the We’re Good To Go standard, for organisations that are following government and industry guidelines, have a risk assessment in place and have a process to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing.
