Beamish Museum Virtual Tours

Experience NewcastleGateshead from your sofa with virtual tours and events.

During this difficult year and the enforced closures of the coronavirus lockdown, Newcastle and Gateshead's best attractions, museums and galleries have become very creative with the way they continue to showcase their innovative displays, impressive exhibitions and host inspiring events. It's no different with Christmas on the horizon with annual events like the famous Fenwick Newcastle Christmas window reveal going online too.
