Professor Hoot

Past Perspectives

This 2 day tour is only available for a limited time!

Do you like art? Do you like Victorian times, grand houses? Do you find steam engines and their history interesting?

This LIMITED TIME short break mini tour provides a unique insight into an early 19th century world from the perspectives of 3 very different artists and includes the grand country house Cragside.  We’ll see dramatic paintings of John Martin, steam related etchings and paintings of Thomas Hair, a demonstration on woodblock printing of the 81th c and the nature engravings of Thomas Bewick. We’ll visit Cragside, the design of which was the creative vision of Armstrong, a most remarkable Victorian engineer and industrialist and finish up with a fun day at Beamish open air museum with train rides, re-enactments with costumed people and livestock.
