 Since myself and my friends have all finished uni for the summer we decided to go on a little trip to Beamish. Its been a very long time since I was last at Beamish..maybe even when I was back at school! For those who don't know what Beamish is it basically is a outside British museum that tells a story from different periods of times: Georgian, Victorian, and Edwardian periods. So if you are into your history this is a interesting place to go to!

Once we arrived the first thing we did was got on a tram that took us to a farm and from then on we went on foot. We wondered around where all the animals were at first which wasn't the greatest way to start considering I had chicken in my dinner. But once we finished seeing all the animals we sat down on a table and had something to eat.We all brought out own lunch with us as Beamish is quite pricey for food! I just brought a chicken salad, fruit and some raisins.

Once we finished eating we started to walk again only this time we went inside old houses and even a school with a playground too, where we decided to try and play with the hoop and stick which I just couldn't get the hang of! I was drawn towards a lot of the typography logos, designs etc as you can tell and of course I was drawn towards some of the bedroom designs as well.


We ended our little trip wondering around Beamish town where the famous, yummy sweet and cake shop is. I almost indulged into buying some sweets but I resisted as I know they'd go to waste since I don't really eat sweets. We did however watch someone create cinder toffee and had a sample of that which I liked..however didn't really enjoy the after taste!


Once we finished admiring historic houses, dentists, clothes shops etc we decided to take a trip back to the beginning on the tram and had a little look in the gift shop.


This was such a great day out especially since the weather stayed ok too. I'd have to say my favourite part was the Victorian houses I just loved there interior designs and furniture. I also really liked seeing the dentist area and how they'd deal with peoples teeth back in those days, found it really fascinating!


Do you like history, museums etc?
