A beautiful church in the Georgian landscape, an Edwardian chemist’s shop and a photographer’s studio are all recent additions to Beamish and a great reason for a return visit. You might also have heard about the museum’s fantastic £18m plans to create a 1950s Town including shops, houses, a community centre and a real working cinema. There’ll be new exhibits in the Georgian landscape too, including a potter’s, blacksmith’s and candle house, along with a Georgian coaching inn where visitors can stay overnight.
Work starts this winter and the whole project is expected to take around 4 years to complete – exciting times ahead! If you’d like to add a little something special to your group’s visit, Afternoon Fare, exclusively for parties of 15 or more is just the thing. The delicious light buffet lunch is served in a private room overlooking the award-winning 1910s Town and is available on weekdays for groups of 15 to 50 people, (excluding school and Bank Holidays). Pre-booking is essential via the Group Bookings Officer.
