Hotels near the Beamish
History comes to life at the Beamish open-air museum, devoted to the re-enactment of Northern English life from 1800 to the 20th century. Visitors explore traditional houses, farms and shops, all painstakingly restored and brought to life by actors in period costume.
Experience the cramped conditions of the still-functioning Drift Mine, see original pit cottages from 1913 and visit the sweet shop for period confectionary. Children will also love the Home Farm with its horses, sheep, ducks and geese.
