“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 the father of English history at our 11-acre historical and environmental oasis in the heart of South Tyneside.

Featuring a museum dedicated to exploring the life and legacy of Bede, an extensive Anglo-Saxon farm and reconstructed Anglo-Saxon dwellings, Jarrow Hall also showcases the story of Northern innovation, inventiveness and imagination as part of the Great Exhibition of the North's A History of the North in 100 Objects.


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 animals, donations will support essential improvements for our current and future residents.

Open six days a week Tuesday to Sunday, Jarrow Hall is suitable for visitors of all ages and is companion animal-friendly too. See our Opening Times and Visitor Information page to plan your visit.


Jarrow Hall is managed and operated by Groundwork South Tyneside and Newcastle in partnership with South Tyneside Council and supported by Port of Tyne.
