A trip to Durham would not be complete without a visit to the Beamish Museum; an open air ‘living’ museum which seeks to preserve an example of everyday life during the industrialisation of the North during the Victorian era. A short journey away from the Secret Hotel estate, a day spent at the museum wondering at the rare livestock breeds, reconstructed mining pits, horse mill and steam train is sure to open the eyes of visitors as to the realities of life during the early 20th century.
