About Bede’s World
Bede's World is an interactive and living history museum in Jarrow, Tyne & Wear, which tells the story of Anglo-Saxon life in Northumbria and the life and times of the famous Anglo-Saxon writer Bede.
The complex contains both a museum and a replica Anglo-Saxon farm, containing buildings constructed in the Anglo-Saxon style and demonstrating what life would have been like in the region in 700AD.
The Bede's World museum explores the life of Bede as well as Anglo-Saxon history and the more general history of the area over 1,300 years. It contains a number of interactive exhibits which provide particular fun for kids.
Arbeia Roman Fort was one of the wall forts of Hadrian’s Wall and served as a military supply base for the other encampments.
Glastonbury Abbey is one of the most important historic abbeys in Britain and the legendary burial place of King Arthur.
