Durham Lumiere & Beamish Museum
2 days - by coach

Price from £109.95 per person*
Departs 18th Nov 2017

Single person supplement : £30.00 per person

This County Durham Double includes time in Durham, the county's small–but–perfectly–formed cathedral city. Imagine spectacular patterns of light projected onto buildings all around, the cathedral adorned like a gigantic stained glass window or a medieval illuminated manuscript, bridges washed in vibrant colours, and trees along the River Wear highlighted in glowing greens and blues, all reflected in the water. That's just a taste of the Lumiere Festival, held in Durham every other year and one of the largest public arts projects in the country.

Your weekend break also includes a visit to Beamish Museum, where buildings from the 1800s and 1900s have been dismantled, brought to Beamish, and reconstructed in 300 acres of the finest County Durham countryside. You'll see the Edwardian Town, Pit Village, Home Farm and Pockerley Old Hall as they would have been in their day, and learn about life in the North East at the time. More like time travel than a museum, Beamish is the experience of somebody else's lifetime!

Saturday   After a morning pick up from your local area the coach will take you to Durham where you will have free time for shopping and perhaps a look around the 900–year–old cathedral until darkness falls and the magnificent displays of the Lumiere Festival light up the city. There'll be time to have a look at the spectacular light installations and find a nice place for dinner before we re–join the coach at 9pm for the transfer to your overnight hotel.

Sunday   A fortifying full English breakfast will set you up for a visit to Beamish Museum, one of the North East's best–loved attractions with lots to see for all the family. You'll have several hours to look around, then at around 3pm the coach will commence the journey home.
