Delightful County Durham

Durham is home to the most beautiful Romanesque cathedral in England, positioned next to Durham Castle, forming an impressive city panorama. Whether you choose a 3 or 4 night stay, your groups will enjoy exploring this compact city - the Beamish Museum and magnificent Bowes Museum also feature in our fantastic tour!
Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel in time for dinner.

Day 2 Beamish Museum
Today, we visit the Living Museum of the North, the Beamish Museum. This famous open air museum, set within 300 acres of beautiful County Durham countryside, tells the story of life in North East England during the 1820s, 1900s and 1940s. We experience town life as it would have been during these times and take unlimited free rides on the Beamish tram.

Day 3 Durham
We spend today in the World Heritage Site of Durham city. Explore beautiful Durham Cathedral, where the breathtaking vaulted ceiling soars skyward like the choristers’ voices, and discover its Open Treasure experience which gives visitors access to previously hidden spaces within the Cathedral. Durham is a compact city so we can explore its attractions easily at leisure.

Day 4 Bowes Museum
Today, we visit the award winning Bowes Museum - a French chateau in the north of England housing an outstanding collection of European art. Displayed over three floors, the stunning galleries include fashion and textiles, silver and metals, ceramics, decorative arts and picture galleries. Don't miss the iconic and much-loved musical Silver Swan, a life-size model controlled by clockwork mechanisms - when the mechanism is wound up the music begins and the beautiful swan preens its back. The swan is normally in action at 2.00 pm every day and his performance lasts about 40 seconds.

Day 5 Departure
After breakfast, we begin our journey home.
