“It’s 10 years since we have been to Beamish Museum” Guests leaving today after their stay in Granary Barn have worked out that it’s 10 years since they last visited Beamish Museum - they won’t be leaving it as long the next time. Top 10 Highlights of Beamish Museum from guests staying in Granary Barn 1. The school at The Pit Village - they love going back to school, having races will the boolers. 2. Going down the pit, it’s not for everyone, the girls left the boys to it and enjoyed an ice cream instead ! 3. The farmer told them all about the fish and chips, before they went and he got told he was right, absolutely delish. 4. Nothing like a ride on a steam train on the waggon way at Pockerley Hall 5. Guests loved the Quilters Cottage, the flagstones, the history, the murder! 6. Arriving into The town on the tram was a treat 7. The Co-op brought back some memories! 8. They all remembered the old money and thought it went a lot further !! 9. The farm, the animals, the cottages the demonstration 10. Everything! Especially the staff http://ow.ly/GmRD30p7Sqr

With a finish line in front of Grey’s Monument and a circuit around the Bigg Market and Grainger Street, this is going to be an amazing event to spectate. The circuit has fast 90 degree turns, cobbled and downhill sections as well as narrow streets and fading light! The action will be fast and super exciting! The race begins at 8pm, with a Youth Race at 6.30pm, where you can cheer on some the brightest talent in the country. Don't miss this unique opportunity to get up close to an elite race as it takes to the streets of NE1.
