“Possibly my favourite place in the world... certainly the most important Anglo-Saxon site in the world"
Dr Janina Ramirez - Cultural historian, broadcaster and author
Discover the incredible world of Anglo-Saxon Northumbria and the extraordinary life of Bede - the father of English history - at our historic and environmental oasis in the heart of South Tyneside. Set across 11 acres, Jarrow Hall features a museum dedicated to exploring the life and legacy of Bede, alongside an extensive Anglo-Saxon farm and reconstructed Anglo-Saxon dwellings.
We're embarking on a mission to transform our farm into an animal sanctuary while enhancing the story we tell about how the Anglo-Saxons lived and worked with animals. Already home to over 70 rare-breed and rescued individuals, donations will support essential improvements for our current and future residents.
Currently closed for the season until February 2019, Jarrow Hall remains available for private hires, events and school visits. Suitable for visitors of all ages and companion animal-friendly too, see our Opening Times and Visitor Information page to plan your visit.
