“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.
