George Stephenson's Birthplace, Near Wylam, Newcastle upon Tyne, Northumberland, NE418BP

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.

This event took place in September 2015 and the entry is now archived.
