Visitor Information

As in the days of the Saxon monastery when hospitality was a policy of the community, so our aim is to make your visit a happy one.

At Bede’s Bakehouse a warm welcome with a hot meal is possible; historic guides are on hand to give guided tours.

Follow the links for maps showing how to get here, for information about Bede’s Way and Bede’s Cycle Way, and places to stay.

Group parties can plan tours, conferences, meals, concert bookings, as may individuals, though we are happy to greet visitors within our opening times.
