What to expect

South Shields and Jarrow are vibrant towns in the North East of England that boast fascinating history all the way from before the Romans. Discover the story of the Roman Fort of Arbeia, the supply base for Hadrian's Wall, and the Anglo-Saxon story of the North East through Jarrow Hall.

Visit Arbeia, to see the stories of both soldiers and civilians with dedications to middle eastern traders, slaves, and native Britons living together at this frontier.

At Jarrow Hall, the story of Germanic Anglo-Saxons is told through the museum dedicated to the Venerable Bede. Both sites offer fantastic reconstructions of buildings from their periods as Roman gatehouses, barrack blocks, and commanding officers' houses. You will really feel like you're living it firsthand!
