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.
