“Take a step back in time to visit this world famous open air museum, telling the story of life in North East England during the 1820s, 1900s & 1940s. Ride on a tram, see how cinder toffee is made, talk to the animals on the working farm, play hopscotch in the old schoolyard, pop into the Sun Inn for a pint after trip to the colliery.....There's plenty to keep visitors of all ages occupied for a full day and it's only a 15 minute drive away.”

There is also a massive ten screen cinema attached. There's a kiddy train that drives around the mall and comfortable seating spread throughout to take a little break from shopping.
