Jarrow Hall

The world's only Anglo-Saxon Farm, Village and Bede Museum.

Jarrow Hall animalAnglo-Saxon Farm and Village

The farm is a great place to discover why farming was so important in daily Anglo-Saxon life.

Home to curly-coated pigs, Dexter bullocks, sheep, goats, ducks, chickens and more. This 11-acre site houses rare breeds which are the closest possible representatives of the animals that would have been present 1300 years ago.

The farm is complemented by a number of replica wattle and daub and timber-framed buildings based on structures excavated within Anglo-Saxon Northumbria, and is a green haven in the middle of Jarrow.

Bede Museum

The museum tells the story of the Venerable Bede and his time, from the beginnings of the Anglo-Saxon period through Bede's life, death and extraordinary legacy. Widely regarded as the 'father of English history', Bede was an author, scholar, skilled linguist and translator who also composed works on astronomical timekeeping and the motions of the sun, Earth and Moon.

An English monk at the double monastery of Wearmouth-Jarrow, his most famous work is The Ecclesiastical History of the English People. One of the most important original references on Anglo-Saxon history, this work also played a key role in the development of an English national identity.

Jarrow Hall

A beautiful Grade II listed manor house adjacent to the Bede Museum and overlooking Drewetts Park to the south. It's currently undergoing renovation but will soon be home to a new café on the ground floor, with tenanted offices alongside a unique hire and function space - the Oval Room - on the first floor.
