It is over 20 years since we last visited Beamish and the development is certainly impressive, this place certainly gives you the feel of stepping back in time. The pit village has a ver authentic feel, the school brings back vivid memories of childhood, a childhood much simpler than that to be experienced today, with advantages and disadvantages. The drift mine was well done and certainly worth a visit.
The Town once again had a very authentic feel, and was interesting to see.
There is much to see and do, and it seems unfair to try and bring out highlights, but the brief glimpse into the lives of ordinary people in different places of work and circumstances really does bring history alive. Something here for all ages.
Oh and I love the trams and buses to get around the site.
