Beamish Museum – Co. Durham

You can’t visit Durham and not visit the nearby Beamish Museum. This “living museum” is a superb example of urban and rural life that existed in the early 20th century in N.E England.

We had previously visited some 15 – 20 years ago, when our children were young and it was great to return, a few weeks ago, and remind ourselves how amazing the Beamish is. We were only there for a day and really did not get a chance to see all of the exhibits, but we will most definitely return in the near future.

Below are a few images, including some of the interiors of the houses in the old Victorian town.

    I love Victorian homes ! The furniture and decoration of that period is exquisite. I have visited a few Victorian homes in the past few years and I would love to see this one ! Thanks for sharing these beautiful photos Jim 🙂

    • Hi Jocelyne and thanks for your comments. You get a real feeling of being back in time in these houses, at the Beamish. Well worth a visit, but a long way for you to come.

  2. Looks like a great place to visit and get a feel of early British life! Vibrant colors!

    • Many thanks Judy. Inside some the buidings there is an old “smell”, which I imagine would be typical of the odour in a “working class” family house.
