Beamish offers Edwardian-style fish and chips

We Spotted this article at and we will definitely be visiting Beamish this summer!

If you like your fish ad chips, then have you ever wondered how they would have tasted in Edwardian times?
Beamish is giving you the chance to find out this summer-when they open an Edwardian-style fish and chip shop.
Visitors will enjoy their old fashioned fish and chips cooked in beef dripping and served in the traditional way – in newspaper.
In Edwardian times they would have only cost one penny – but that sadly is one of the things that will be updates. The shop will be built in the pit village and will be decorated in archive photographs and vintage tiles to take visitors back in time to the Edwardian era.
Kate Reeder, who works at Beamish and is helping build the shop, said: “It was incredibly popular, probably more popular than is it now, as there wasn’t as much choice – it was fish and chips or the pub.”
