Beamish Museum

Stanley DH9 0RG, United Kingdom

Experience a taste of Victorian- and Edwardian-era life in northern England with a visit to this award-winning living museum where “villages” represent periods from the 1820s to the mid-1900s. The exhibits focus on working class life in the rural north of England, from Victorian tenant farmers to Industrial Revolution coal miners to those supporting the home front during World War II. Replica trams and motor coaches offer an educational and convenient way to get around the museum.
