Kynren - An Epic Tale of England & Durham
Late morning join the coach for an included visit to Durham. Durham is home to England's most beautiful Romanesque cathedral, a huge castle, and, surrounding them both, a cobweb of hilly, cobbled streets, a beautiful city with streets packed with history, culture and stunning architecture. Guarded by the River Wear, Durham City with its dramatic skyline never fails to impress. Return to the hotel to enjoy an early meal prior to setting off for the Kynren show. Take your seat as dusk settles over the vast, still lake and the expectant audience of 8,000 falls silent and the epic show begins.......
Beamish Museum (entry included)
Touch, taste, hear, see and smell history on an unforgettable journey into the past at England's largest open-air museum. Set in 300 acres of beautiful Durham countryside, Beamish - The Living Museum of the North brings 200 years of English history to life. Hop on a tram and make your way around the vast museum: visit the 1900s town and watch traditional sweets being made in the sweet shop, then visit the dentist (if you dare!). Try a tasty treat from the Edwardian Bakery or a pint at the Sun Inn Pub, then step even further back in time to the 1800s and take a steam train ride through the Georgian landscape on replica locomotives. Immerse yourself in the 1900s at the Pit Village by going down a real mine and enjoying a traditional fish and chips at Davy's Fried Fish Shop. Staff are dressed in period costume, which makes the experience truly authentic.
