There really is so much to see and do at Beamish Museum that when you're half way through your first visit you really start to appreciate why their twelve month, return as often as you like, tickets are sold to every visitor.
I first visited Beamish the same year that 'The Town' was officially opened. 28 years has passed since then, but I have to say the 2013 experience was just as good, if not better, than I remember it as a child.
• The town Dentist
• Entire pit village
• The farm
• A ride on the tram and bus
• Payment system in the Co-op
• Engage with the interpreters – they’re really good!
The massive disappointment is the catering – it is of poor quality and overall a ‘below par’ offering. We’d happily spend between £20 and £40 enjoying a great lunch; unfortunately you just cannot seem to find that in Beamish.
I am sure the food offer will improve in line with their future plans for the site. By no means let my comments put you off – let’s face it; you can always take a pack lunch!
OVERALL: Go to Beamish! It’s fun, educational and thoroughly entertaining.
