Entry to Beamish Open Air Museum for The Beamish Steam Fair, Day at leisure in Newcastle.
With a morning departure, we begin our journey North having refreshment stops as required before arriving at the hotel.
Today we visit Beamish and the Great Northern Steam Fair. This fantastic event is set to feature a whole host of road vehicles, engines and trains from the period up to 1918 in spectacular action around the museum. The extraordinary line-up of around 120 exhibits includes steam locomotives, around 26 road steam vehicles and up to 80 motor vehicles, such as motorcycles, cars and lorries and a fire engine or two! There will be a real sense of the roads and railways of the Home Front during the Great War, including a fine selection of military vehicles.
After a full cooked breakfast, we enjoy a free day at leisure in the glorious city of Newcastle, exploring the city's many attractions and famous sights such as the Tyne Bridge or the Castle Keep that gave the city its name.
