Enjoy the fabulous panoramic views in our extensive outdoor beer garden and terraces. We are only minutes away from the following...
Beamish Museum is a 2 minute drive from the Black Horse and provides the perfect day for the whole family. Visit the town, colliery, village, working farm, pockerley manor and 1825 railway, recreating life in the North East in the early 1800's and 1900's.
A 15 minute walk up the back road and you will find the world's oldest working railway and engine shed. The surviving 1725 Sunniside to Causey section is still running, the oldest part was 1647 with over 300 years of coal traffic. A great day out for families and history fans alike, or anyone with an interest in our proud railway heritage.
Causey arch and picnic area
The worlds oldest surviving railway bridge built in 1725 stands over a rocky gorge, woodland walks and access to Tanfield railway.
