Beamish is a living, working museum, set in 300 acres of County Durham countryside. Costumed demonstrators bring to life the Edwardian Town and Pit Village, complete with original drift mine. At Home Farm and Pockerley Old Hall, experience firsthand how the Industrial revolution transformed agricultural life in the region. A delicious taste of the past is on offer from our latest exhibit, Joseph Herron, Baker and Confectioner, located within the Edwardian Town.Visitors are able to watch bakers at work using traditional methods and can buy tasty treats, such as bread, cake and biscuits, to take home.
