About the church

A place of worship was founded on this site of the present church in 635 by Saint Aidan.  St Aidan was called to Bamburgh from Iona by King Oswald to establish Christianity in his newly united kingdom of Northumbria.

No trace of that wooden building can be now be seen - other than perhaps a beam in the Baptistery.  Tradition has it that thsi is the beam that St Aidan was leaning against when he died and it is said to have miraculously survived two fires.

The site of St Aidan's death is marked by a simple shrine within the present church.  The church building that is now seen dates from the end of the 12th century.

This parish church has been a focus of pilgrimage over the centuries and modern day visitors and pilgrims are very welcome.

St Aidan’s is open from 10am - 4pm every day.
