We know you will be a little spoilt for choice, but when you hire an Economy Hire van or car it will be easy to fit several visits in. There are farms, outdoor activities and museums, all within an hours drive of the city. In South Shields, North Shields and Wallsend you will find some of the most exciting and interesting, not to mention informative and educational attractions around, many of which are hands on.

The world famous Beamish open air museum tells the story of life in the North East of England covering the 1820s, 1900s and 1940s. Situated amongst 300 acres of countryside in County Durham, you can enjoy exploring a 1940’s farm, a pit village, an authentic market town with traditional shops, a colliery which allows you to experience going down the mine, and tram or steam train rides.

Diggerland in Durham is a fabulous theme park which allows adults and children to ride, drive and operate full size diggers and other fun vehicles. Jump out of one of our cars and into a speedy Go-Kart, spin around in a digger bucket or get lifted up into the air by the Skyshuttle. Indoor or outdoor play also means coin operated rides, sandpits and lots more.

If you or the family are drawn to outdoor pursuits there are lots of local options to choose from as you zip around in your hire vehicle. In Ponteland, Northumberland you can see all manner of birds, reptiles and animals including alpacas, ring tailed lemurs, marmosets and emus at Kirkley Hall Zoological Garden. A petting barn will also delight the kids, and there are even more friendly animals to meet if you pop into Hall Hill Farm, Durham. If you find animals irresistible, you will also love Whitehouse Farm, Morpeth, where you will be mesmerized by meerkats, bunnies, owls and even a skunk! Phew.

Go Ape, Newcastle, Tanfield Railway, Newcastle, Washington Wetland Centre, Tyne and Wear and the Centre For Life in Newcastle all offer an enticing array of activity, and are easily accessed in your local Economy Hire van or car.
