    Campbell (Transport museum) definitely worth a visit. We went earlier this year and really enjoyed it.

    Beamish is great. You need a couple of days to see all of it. Parking at Beamish is easy peasy, plenty of space even for large vans.

    Phil is it possible to overnight there then ?
    Given it will be mid to late September it should be a little quieter ?

    I have never stayed overnight, but there is a ton of space to park. It would be a good place to overnight if allowed. You could go onto their website and ask the question.

    Hey John! When will you be in St Austell? The Britannia is a regular haunt of us and our Cornish family. We'll be there mid September. Xx

    There is no overnight camping at Beamish, John, other than as part of organised rallies.

    C&CC (Durham DA) have a rally there 11-13 September and MCC are there October 2nd to 5th.

    John, do you know if you can you stay at either of these places?

    By the way I think you have got the post code for one of them wrong - not sure which

    Aha ! That might well work out good for us Graham.. But if not there are a couple of places I can plot up for the night within shouting distance..

    John.. friends in low places and all that :) Some of the places on the list are not over nights merely places we will be visiting..
    And yes ! You are spot on.. and thank you for pointing it out !! Britannia is actually at PL24 2SL
