Jarrow's monastery of St Paul was one of the most influential centres of learning in the late Saxon era, with a reputation that spread across Europe. The monastery was established by Benedict Biscop, a Northumbrian noble who lived from about AD 628-690. Biscop is said to have been religiously inspired after a visit to Rome.

Tynemouth Priory and Castle is a complex of historic buildings that have been in use since at least the Iron Age period. The appeal of the site is its position on an isolated headland situated between the River Tyne and the sea. There was a native settlement here during the Roman period, and in the 7th century a monastery was established on the site, and Oswin, Northumbrian king and saint, is supposed to have been buried here.
