Jubilee Confectioners

Jubilee Confectioners was built in 1994 to represent a typical town sweet shop.

Very popular with children and adults alike who can purchase old fashioned sweets in the shop.

There was a demonstration of cinder toffee making when I took these photographs on 18th May 2014.

Like the photos of the "Sun Inn" Steve.

Below, is a photo of my Father-in Law (from Harlow, Essex) outside the Sun Inn, on one of his many visits here.

This one was taken in 1997.

My Father in Law died some years ago, but whenever we go back to Beamish, we always take at least one photo of one of us standing in exactly that location.

Printers, Stationers & Newspaper Branch Office

This is a facsimile of a 1900's town printer, stationers and newspaper branch office based upon the Northern Daily Mail.

Much of the machinery presses in the print works came from Jack Ascough's in Barnard Castle, County Durham. Some of the presses date from 1830.

At my age its rather embarrassing to say this was only my second visit to Beamish.

However the good thing about the ticketing policy is that adults pay £18 admission but that same ticket gets you into Beamish at any time in the following 12 months, so a real bargain if you can easily get there.

We were there for a good 5 hours and still didn't get to see everything so will be returning soon.
