In and around Boldon

Beamish Museum

An open-air museum, which aims to preserve the history of the local area during the height of the Industrial Revolution. Learn about the late Victorian and Edwardian era, walking through restored and replicated buildings, viewing artefacts along with vehicles and equipment of the time as well as the costumed staff, who bring the museum to life. This is a magical experience, which seems to really transport you back in time.

Durham Cathedral

A marvellous testament to Norman architecture, the current building was erected in the year 1093 AD. The cathedral is home to the Shrine of St Cuthbert, the head of St Oswald and the remains of the Venerable Bede. Highlights of the building include the awe-inspiring Galilee Chapel, complete with medieval wall paintings, the towering sandstone pillars and the rose window. There is also an exhibition that allows visitors to see recreations of how the Cathedral would have looked many eons ago, including a 14th century monks dormitory.

Darlington Railway Centre and Museum

The ‘Head of Steam’ museum offers an insightful look into the once thriving railway industry of Darlington. Located on the same infamous route of the first ever steam worked public railway, this museum is comprised of three railway buildings and a number of attractions including the earliest surviving Darlington built locomotive.
