Beamish Open Air Museum, Cragside House, Woodhorn Colliery, River Tyne cruise, Alnwick

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 during the North East’s mining heyday and how the ‘other half’ lived at Cragside House.
