Fodor's England 2014
Bede's World Review
Four miles east of Newcastle, this site holds substantial monastic ruins, the church of St. Paul, and a small museum reflecting the long tradition of religion and learning that began here in AD 681, when the first Saxon church was established on the site. The Venerable Bede, deemed to be England's earliest historian, moved into the monastery as a child and remained until his death. You can gain a sense of medieval life from the farm buildings, reconstructed by modern historians using traditional methods, and the rare breeds of pigs and cattle on the 11-acre Anglo-Saxon farm. There's also a shop and a café. To get here, take Bus 526 or 527, or the Metro to the Bede/Jarrow station (20-minute walk).
