Visited Beamish whilst staying in the area. Weather not brilliant cold & drizzle but didn,t spoil the day. So much to see will probably need to return but the ticket is valid for a year. The trams & buses were fantastic but its a short walk between attractions. Liked the town with its old Co-op, garage, pub, sweet shop, stables, dentist & tearooms etc. Prices reasonable in the tearooms didn,t try the fish & chips but sounded delicious cooked over a coal fire. The pit village was also very good with its cottage, school & chance to go down a drift mine. There was a steam fun fare & farm but didn,t have time to see them, perhaps next time. Can,t wait to visit again with my family, thoroughly recommend it.
