The hell hole of Tourism - Beamish Museum

Well, what a day it was.

      Even though I would quite happily go again, I WILL NOT go when it's tourism season.
   I'm going to comment on the place first and then in another post, complain about the fucking tourists.

The reason I went this weekend was because The Great North Steam Ralley arrived their and drove about the streets. But still, it was busy.
  *For anyone that doesn't know, Beamish Open Air Museum is basically a recreation of a working town in the early 1900's*

There is so much to see and do at this massive town.. A clear amount of determination and effort went into building it. Just minor details really make it feel like you're there.

  Here is a picture of one part of the village/town part.
So far that I can remember, there was; A mine, a train station, a working town complete with pretty much every shop. A living village, a farm complete with animals and there is much more!   This is a place you have to spend a few days at to see everything. Nicely though with any ticket you buy it grants you access for the rest of the year to this place.

      Do a Google search for it, or a Youtube search and find out more about it. It is wonderful :)

I will post later on about all the things that annoyed me. I thought about them,
  and some are just fucking mental -.-
