Durham Cathedral is the greatest Norman building in England, perhaps even in Europe. It is cherished not only for its architecture but also for its incomparable setting. For this reason it was inscribed together with the Castle as one of Britain’s first World Heritage Sites. In a nationwide BBC poll held in 2001 it was voted the nation’s best-loved building.
Beamish is a world famous open air museum telling the story of the people of North East England during the Georgian, Victorian, and Edwardian times.
In the early 1800s, the region was rural and thinly populated. The Industrial Revolution, particularly the coming of the railways, accelerated change. By Edwardian times the heavy industries of the region were at their peak.
