Christmas time at Beamish

Last Friday night myself, Matthew and our friends piled in the car and set off to Beamish, which for us takes about 45 minutes. We were going to experience Christmas at Beamish which we were all very curious about.

We weren't sure what to expect. We wondered which parts would be open and what would be happening. When we arrived we were all very cold and windy. We went into the cafe in the entrance building and luckily they were giving everyone mulled wine which was lovely and warmed us up.

We walked down to the tram stop and luckily one had just arrived so we jumped on and headed down to the Pit Village. There we had a look in the school and had a general wander about, stopping for a hot chocolate and a biscuit. When we'd had enough of the Village, we set off walking to the Town.

Everywhere was super Christmassy with colourful lights, festive wreaths and lots of paper decorations. On our walk to the town we passed the carousel and around it was a some Christmas stalls, a small ice rink and other rides. It wasn't massive, but it was cute.

When we got to the town all the shops and houses were kitted out in Christmas gear. There was people playing music on the bandstand and inside the houses which was lovely. We decided to go for a sit down in the pub so we could warm up. It was a cosy atmosphere in there with everyone popping in to shelter from the cold.

We looked around the other shops, stopping at the bakery to pick up a snack. When we'd had our fill there it was time to head back the entrance as the museum closes at 10pm. Although it was bitterly cold, it was a great evening out. If you like Beamish and enjoy being out and about at Christmas time, I'd definitely recommend a visit in the festive period.
