Resource verified by SHCG editorial group


Beamish is set in over 300 acres of beautiful countryside and recreates life in the North of England in the early 1800s and 1900s. Beamish is a world famous open air museum telling the story of the people of North East England. The story of Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian life is told by our costumed staff and volunteers in a unique living and working museum. Most of the houses, shops and other buildings have been dismantled, brought to Beamish and rebuilt here.
