weddings at Jarrow Hall

Jarrow Hall is a unique 11-acre site, an environmental and historical oasis, featuring at its heart a museum dedicated to exploring the fascinating life and legacy of Bede, an extensive Anglo-Saxon demonstration farm and authentically reconstructed historic dwellings.

Our site also boasts Jarrow Hall House, a beautiful Grade-II listed manor house built around 1785. To the east of the building sits a Herb Garden which includes culinary and medicinal species and is based on the Plan of Saint Gall – a famous medieval architectural drawing of a monastic compound dating from the early 9th century.

The opportunities for photographs across our stunning venue are endless.

When you choose to host your wedding with us, we guarantee a memorable location with friendly, helpful and approachable staff who will go to extraordinary lengths to ensure all your wishes are met, giving you a truly unforgettable experience.

Our wedding packages have been created to allow you to focus on the bigger picture whilst we take care of the finer details.  We have used our knowledge to streamline the process and put all the ingredients together to create a truly memorable day but we understand that every individual couple will have their own vision and ideas and we will work with you, and our well trusted, recommended suppliers to help design the wedding of your dreams.

As a local charity it is really important to us that we follow through on our vision – Changing Places Changing Lives – in everything we do; our events are no exception. All the profits and proceeds from our events are re-invested into the community through the different projects we run.
