This is a fantastic day out - lots to see and really nice staff. It takes longer than you think to walk round so leave plenty of time to view everything. As this is largely outdoors I intend to visit again in a different season...More

Lush walk with dogs, had a cuppa and the toilet's are great too. Lots to see very beautiful . The grounds are beautiful, well kept, the buildings are stunning, and the smells from the log fires adds to the whole beautiful atmosphere

Wow this place is amazing. Be prepared for lots of walking but they have old farmhouses with the coal fires burning. Step back in time to see how people lived and worked. Free entry and just £5 parking.

Who said learning can’t be fun! Whilst not as glitzy as similar offerings over the border (think Beamish living museum in Tyneside) the museum is staffed by friendly and knowledgeable staff where learning comes with an emphasis on fun. Highly recommended.

Super place, even on a wet day! Historic buildings are worth visiting several times. Looking forward to the completion of new ones. New building and galleries are very impressive. I do have a criticism however, probably aimed at the curators. The displays in the galleries...More
