Hi eveyone,

I off to Beamish museum in a fortnight, I've got a 25% discount for buying tickets on the gate but been told the queue can get quite long. Has anyone been, is the queue worth the discount or should I just pay full price & avoid the queue.

Thanks

It was a couple of years ago but we experienced long queues at the ticket office of about half an hour wait. If we were to go again I would buy online. Didn't know about the discount buying at the entrance.

Thanks,

The discount voucher I've got is from the caravan club, & can't be used online.

I thought the discount would be from an online offer?
And you would pay full price at the gate.
That's how it 'usually' works doesn't it?

Anyway, I think with Beamish, you pay once and return for free for the rest of the year....

Same offer applies to Alnwick Garden too..

Where Next....?

I visited on the 2nd Sept & decided to buy on the door, we arrived at 9.50am 1omins before it opens & where first in the queue. I therefore used my discount so got a years pass for 13.12 & only had to wait 10mins.

When we visited a couple of years ago, it wasnt the entrance and ticket office that took the time, but the queue for the tram into the town itself and the mining village.

I would love to go again sometime, that and the National Rail Museum are two of my favourites, closely followed by the Castle Museum in York, which is full of social history from Victorian times.
