DAY ONE – Arrival

We depart from your home and travel north to Durham where tea and coffee await you on arrival, time to relax before dinner this evening.

 

DAY TWO – Beamish Open-Air Museum

Today’s outing takes us north to the famous Beamish North of England Open Air Museum, capturing the spirit of the Northeast in the 1800s and 1900s. Attractions include restored tram and replica bus rides, authentic town street, colliery village, go down the mine, old fashioned sweet shop, working farm, steam locomotives and much more. From here we make our way back to the hotel.

 

DAY THREE – City of Durham

This morning we travel to the ancient and historic City of Durham, acclaimed as a World Heritage Site and dominated by the magnificent Norman Cathedral and Castle, high above the River Wear. You can explore the city with its labyrinth of little streets and alleyways, or you may fancy a stroll by the river. During the afternoon we leave Durham and return to the hotel.

 

DAY FOUR – Barnard Castle and Bowes Museum

Leaving after breakfast we begin our day with a drive to the market town of Barnard Castle, known as ‘Barny’ to the locals. You can see where Dickens immortalised ‘Dotheboys Hall’, take a look at Cromwell’s refuge, browse round the antique shops or visit the castle itself, high above the Tees. We then visit Bowes Museum, just outside the town. It is a majestic French-style chateau, opened in 1892 and will amaze you with its superb collection including the amazing and beautiful Silver Swan which will majestically swoop down to collect the silver fish, a feat of mechanical engineering and a sheer delight to watch.
