The counties of Durham and Northumbria in the North East of England are a treasure trove of history with so much to discover from the fantastic open air Beamish Museum, Hadrian’s Wall, charming market towns such as Hexham, as well as a buzzing city life in Newcastle.




Enjoy a visit to the superb Beamish  - The Living Museum of the North. It is a fantastic living, working experience of life as it was in North East England in the 18th and 19th centuries. The 1900’s town, colliery, pit village and 1940’s farm really bring history to life.



With our local Blue Badge Guide we take a short panoramic tour through the city and then travel west along the part of the route of Hadrian’s Wall which stretches 73 miles from coast to coast. During our day we’ll visit Chesters Roman Fort, the most complete Roman cavalry fort in Britain and the charming market town of Hexham.
