A trip to Cragside for IOP members, their friends and families has been arranged for Saturday 15th March 2014.

This includes a private tour, called "Turning Water into Light" of Armstrong's hydroelectric generator.

The day costs £20, and free transport is available from Newcastle and Durham.  See below for details.

Enter the world of Lord Armstrong - Victorian inventor, innovator and landscape genius.


Cragside house was truly a wonder of its age. Discover the first house in the world to be lit by hydroelectricity. It is crammed full of ingenious gadgets – most of them still working. The gardens are incredible. One of the largest rock gardens in Europe leads down to the Iron Bridge, which in turn leads to the formal garden.
