Durham, Beamish and Shildon Railway Museum

Enjoy an Elite Door to Door holiday back in time in Beamish.

Durham is steeped in history and celebrates it at every corner – from the striking Norman architecture, historic cathedral and museums and exhibitions galore, it is the perfect destination for history enthusiasts. 

Stepping back into the not-so-distant past in comparison, this tour encompasses all things steam and locomotive.  Head to the Shildon Railway Museum, home to iconic locomotives and beautiful collections of engineering marvels and world-changing inventions and learn the stories behind these stunning vehicles.  If fine-gauge railways, freight trains or the Flying Scotsman is your passion, you’ll want to alight here! 


Return to 20th century life in Northeast England at the Beamish Museum and experience living, breathing history.  This open-air working museum is dedicated to all things historical, and brings to life the sights, sounds and smells (and even tastes) of life through the ages.  This hands-on experience is one not to be missed, so hop on one of their vintage trams or buses to fully immerse yourself in this adventure.
