Birthplace of the world-famous railway engineer
Discover the humble birthplace of great railway pioneer, George Stephenson, whose entire family lived in just one room. Our costumed guide tells the story of how challenging life was for mining families, like George’s, that once crammed into this now charming little stone cottage, nestled in a pretty garden near the river Tyne.
Although the Museum is closed during the winter season, our Tearoom will remain open every weekend from 11am-3pm. If you're walking or cycling along the Wylam Waggonway, pop in and warm up with hot and cold drinks, freshly baked cakes, homemade soups, toasties and bacon butties!
