Visit Beamish Museum this half term.


























As much as I would love to lie and say that this trip was for business purposes, I can't. A few weeks back myself and Sean decided to spend our weekend having abit of fun, escape work for a day and just enjoy some time together, what better place to do that than Beamish? And yes that is correct we went without any children! I have some great memories of visiting Beamish with my close friends as a child, and it was quite nice to relive some of those memories 10 years on, it's crazy how you see things after all the years have past. I never realised how big Beamish actually was, I think as an excited young child I just hopped on and off the tram, or ran from place to place, not actually judging the distance we travelled. Of course things haven't changed, it's all very much the same, but now I'm older I see things a lot differently than I did back then. There is so much to see and you can't quite easily spend the whole day exploring, if the weather is nice you can take a picnic along with you, if not there are a couple of places you can stop off for a bite to eat. We visited the Tearooms, and they had a large variety of food on offer from sandwiches and scones to hot meals and cakes.

Obviously even before arriving at Beamish I knew the highlight for me would be visiting the Old Sweetshop, however it's so much better when your older because you can spend as much as you want on sweets, rather than being rationed by the parents. I remember as a child standing and watching the gentleman make cinder toffee, and I used to run next door and buy a bag straight after, over the years this has changed and this time he was making little hard boiled sweets, still super yummy.  

I must admit I just loved walking around and taking everything in, we only hopped on the tram twice throughout the whole day, the rest we just strolled around, taking photos and learning all the stuff we hadn't paid attention to as children. It's such a great escape from reality for the day.

The reason I think Beamish is the perfect place to visit this half term, is because it's not all for the children. We are both in our twenties, and I can guarantee we had just as much fun as any child there. Whether it be running around the playground with the stick and hoop, playing hop scotch, visiting the animals or calling in to the fish and chip shop. It makes such a good day out for the whole family, and if you don't have children it's perfect for you to be big kids for the day.

I think we will be taking full advantage of our yearly pass, I mean who could get bored of sugar mice and rosey apples? Now every time you purchase your tickets, they are extended to yearly passes, so you can fill up more school holidays with educational trips. The price is extremely worthwhile for the day you have.

Child (5-16): £11.00

Student: £14:00
