Lindisfarne, the Holy Island
A trip to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne is a must when visiting Northumberland. This unique island a mile off the mainland is cut off twice daily by fast incoming tides. Linked by a causeway you must check the tide times for safe crossing to or from the island.
Don’t forget to plan your visit and check the tide times. It’s a good idea to spend time taking in the stunning views of the Northumbrian coastline, enjoying the peaceful and spiritual surroundings of Lindisfarne Priory while delving into its history. A small community lives on Holy Island and welcomes visitors of all ages, they are more than happy to tell you about the history of this interesting island.
A visit to Lindisfarne Castle and Priory is a must, whilst there visit their fantastic museum to learn about a grisly Viking raid, the cult of St Cuthbert, and the beautiful medieval manuscript: the Lindisfarne Gospels.
