Beamish, previously named 'Pit Hill', is a village in County Durham, England, situated to the north east of Stanley.The village is contained within Hell Hole Wood and is home to Beamish Museum, an open-air museum seeking to replicate a northern town of the early 20th century. Kick off your visit on the 31st (Sat): see the interesting displays at Beamish Museum and then step into the grandiose world of Durham Castle. Keep things going the next day: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Durham Cathedral, admire the natural beauty at Crook Hall & Gardens, then don't miss a visit to World War One Soldier Sculpture, then appreciate the history behind War Memorial Cross, and finally don't miss a visit to The Angel of the North.
