5 Days Half Board by Coach

Join us as we turn the clocks back a hundred or more years and remember how things used to be. At the award-winning, Beamish Open Air Museum streets, shops and homes recreate life at the turn of the century. We also experience how it used to be in Nelson’s day and how the ‘other half’ lived at Cragside House.
