A day free to explore the captivating medieval city of Durham, and discover the cobbled streets of the city, where stylish boutiques and quirky craft shops jostle for attention alongside big name brands. Or visit the magnificent Norman Castle and Cathedral.
Experience a real sense of the past at Beamish, and discover what life was like in North East England in Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian times. Beamish is a living, working museum, set in 300 acres of beautiful Durham countryside. Costumed folk bring to life the Town, Pit Village, Home Farm and Pockerley Old Hall. Experience firsthand how the Industrial Revolution transformed agricultural life in the region. The buildings you see at Beamish are not replicas, but have been brought, brick by brick, from around the region and rebuilt to give visitors a real sense of history. (Entry Included).
Enjoy a trip through the Durham Dales on our way to the pretty village of Blanchland and across the Pennines to the town of Barnard Castle, with its ever popular Wednesday Market. After lunch we visit the Bowes Museum (entry included), a spectacular French-style Chateau with ornate gardens.
Like all great adventures, they must come to an end, so sadly we depart for home with comfort stops en route.
