Beamish Christmas & Historic Durham
2 Days Away
Beamish Museum is a living example of how life used to be, walk down the cobbled streets, take a tram around the reconstructed town, peruse the stock at the shops or buy some cakes at the bakery. Visit the school house in the 1900’s pit village, or take a stroll around the farm, before the use of machinery became commonplace, this museum gives an opportunity to see how everyday life has changed. At this time of year it takes on a special festive feeling, find a special gift at the Beamish Bazaar, wrap up and enjoy the ice rink or enjoy some of the rides at the traditional fairground.
The historic city of Durham, with its winding cobbled streets and fantastic World Heritage Site, is a living piece of history, the castle, built to keep the Scots out, is now a renowned University, and far more welcoming to Scottish visitors these days. The Cathedral, built in honour of St Cuthbert, featured in the Harry Potter film’s as Hogwarts School of Witchcraft & Wizardry, it is known to be one of the finest examples of Norman Architecture, and the view from the top of the tower is well worth the climb.
