Things to see and do in County Durham :
Beamish Museum
Beamish Museum

Beamish is a world famous open air museum telling the story of the people of North East England at two important points in their history – 1825 and 1913. In 1825, the region was rural and thinly populated. The Industrial Revolution, particularly the coming of the railways, accelerated change. By 1913 the heavy industries of the region were at their peak. Beamish stands in 300 acres of beautiful County Durham countryside, eight miles south west of Newcastle upon Tyne, twelve miles north west of Durham city. It is not a traditional museum.

Bowes Museum
Bowes Museum

Visitors to The Bowes Museum today can marvel at the fascinating collections but can also enjoy an exciting programme of exhibitions. Activities in the park and a superb café and shop have helped bring the museum singing and dancing into the 21st century. The magnificent legacy that John and Joséphine left to the people of Teesdale has been cared for to retain its charm and intrigue yet sympathetic developments have made the attraction a popular, vibrant and exciting day out for all.

Broom House Farm
Broom House Farm

The farm house is on the top of the hill, but the farmland itself rolls down the valley to the River Browney. Broom House is really a livestock farm - although some arable crops such as barley, oats, peas, turnips and broad beans are grown - with the aim of producing our own feed for the animals. We have a herd of beautiful Aberdeen Angus cattle, as well as a large flock of Lleyn sheep and a small herd of Saddleback pigs as well as a flock of laying hens. The aim is to breed all our own replacement animals on the farm, enabling us to improve the quality of our livestock through breeding.

Like Hadrian's Wall and the Angel of the North, it is an icon of north-east England, its image is instantly recognisable to people who love this part of Britain.
