With popular demand we are holding a BMW Car Club day at Beamish again. Beamish is a world famous open air museum. It tells the story of life in North East England in Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian times. Beamish stands in 300 acres of beautiful County Durham countryside. Within the site you will find Pockerley Old Hall, The Town, Rowley Station, The Fairground, Home Farm and The Pit Village. With so many things to see, Beamish is a wonderful day out for people of all ages, with free trams and buses to get you all over the museum. At the end of the day those wishing to stay a bit longer and display there cars in the town centre for a great photo opportunity. Now the important bit, the cost of this day out is only £8.00 per head if your in a BMW, normal admission is £18.00 per adult and £10.00 per child I am sure you don't need me to do the math's on that one. Entry is pay on the day at the gate into the show field, entry is from 9.30am till 11.00am arrive after 11.00am and unfortunately it's full price and park in the public car park. The only stipulation Beamish is strict about is there is no movement of vehicles between 11.00am and 4.00pm due to public safety, but I can assure you that if you arrive at 10.00am and want to leave before 4.00pm you have only seen half of this great museum has on show. Beamish is about two miles west off junction 63 of the A1M. Address is Beamish Museum, Beamish, County Durham, DH9 ORG. Beamish web site Beamish, The Living Museum of the North
