At every step we will celebrate the very best of Northumberland. Ours is a rich heritage, and we will offer the chance for an intimate journey into the time that inspired us - the Anglo Saxon Royal Court of Ad Gefrin - when peoples from all corners of the world travelled to attend and be welcomed in. We will welcome you with that same spirit and hospitality - to enjoy our exhibitions and events, our tours, our bistro, bar, and retail offers.
Our immersive AV museum interpretation will invite you into the heart of the Golden Age of the Kingdom of Northumbria – the royal palace of Ad Gefrin - a place of power, ritual, craftsmanship, language and one shaped by nature.
We will recreate the Great Halls of the kings and queens of Northumbria and introduce you to them and their followers. It will be their lives and their stories that bring this rich, and largely untold, period of our history to life.
We will illuminate their presence with artefacts borrowed from national institutions and the finds from the original ‘Gefrin’ archaeological site at Yeavering, just 4 miles away.
We will link to the landscape, archaeology, and stories of the area, then and now, and whet your appetite to further explore the history under your feet in Glendale and North Northumberland.
