“A church from Northumbrias Golden Age”
Reviewed 17 September 2013

An amazing place steeped in history and where The Venerable Bede came at the age of seven one of England's first Historians and biographer of The Life of Cuthbert. The guide here was friendly and knowledgeable and the church has a warm and welcoming feel.There is a cafe attached which is really reasonable and nice down to earth Northern welcome.

“Nice place to go for a walk”
Reviewed 11 August 2013 via mobile

I was exploring Sunderland with my friend, and after a visit to the Glass Museum, we decided to go and see the church. It is well preserved with beautiful architecture, nice lawn around it. It is a place for a short visit but well worth seeing it!

“History at its best”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

The church is 1,340 years old, built in 673AD and is still in good condition with a lot of history behind it . The guide who showed us round was very informative an helpful.
I have got a vested interest , as my wife and I were married there in 1979.
