Travel back in time to Anglo-Saxon Britain at Jarrow Hall: Anglo-Saxon Farm, Village and Bede Museum, a historic and environmental oasis in the heart of South Tyneside. Discover what everyday life was like over one thousand years ago. Meet friendly farm animals and get up close to incredible Anglo-Saxon treasures! Explore this open-air, living history museum; an Anglo-Saxon farm and village.

Can we bring a picnic?

Yes, of course! There are picnic tables on the grass beside the natural play space. Feel free to use them, but please clean up after yourselves and put your litter in the bin provided or take it home with you. Alternatively, why not head over to Hive Coffee and grab yourself something there?

Delve into Anglo-Saxon life. Learn about the animal residents and discover the primitive, rare breed and rescued animals that would have been present in Anglo-Saxon times. All of the animals throughout the farm and village are used purely for educational purposes and live out their lives in comfort and ease. Explore the extraordinary life of the Venerable Bede, the father of English history. The Bede Museum tells the story of Bede and his time, from the beginnings of the Anglo-Saxon period through his life, death and extraordinary legacy. Visit the incredible, experimental buildings which were developed based upon actual archaeological excavations! The archaeological collection includes a wide range of artefacts, principally comprising Anglo-Saxon and Medieval material, with some Post-Medieval finds. For example, this includes stained glass windows, stone sculptures, ceramics, tiles, coins, copper alloy material, lead and iron objects, worked bone, animal bone and shellfish, clay pipes, painted wall plaster, bricks, and food preparation vessels. There are guided tours from available staff (however, you should contact them in advance if you wish to guarantee access to a tour guide).
