Lovely spot and made it over the causeway with no dramas. Great idea to allow for an all day car parking ticket to be used elsewhere on Northumberland Coast as your visit could be cut short dependent on tides and your return to the mainland

Beautiful little island with lots of little shops so peaceful to sit and look out to sea especially around the castle. It's well worth a visit cannot say anything I dislike about it at all

Having heard how this was 'somewhere you had to visit'. We were thoroughly disappointed. Once crossing that causeway, there is literally no turning back. Almost everywhere was closed, the places that were open were ridiculously expensive. The castle was not worth the price, had very little information. You are basically a prisoner for 6 hours, nothing to do but wait... More

My wife and I visited lindesfarne over twenty years ago and we visited with our children (aged10) the week before Easter We went to the castle , owned by the national trust, that was a interesting albeit short tour due to the small nature of the castle itself. The islands look out tower offers fantastic views of the island. I... More

I am not in any way a spiritual person, but there's something very wonderful about Lindisfarne! The drive across the causeway sets the scene, especially on a day when crossing is safe just after dawn, it's spectacular! The place does get very busy, but maybe visitors to the island should bear in mind that they are a part of that... More

Wow, wanted to visit this for years and finally made it. We chose to walk from the car park. There are no visitors cars allowed to drive into the village unless you have a special reason. There is a bus at a fee of £2 per person (return) but the walk is lovely. It is quite a steep slope to... More

From driving over the causeway to the upturned boats everything is picturesque and worth a look. Blustery but beautiful.

Waited too long to go, the only negative. A relaxing location with a fabulous amount of history. Stunning scenery and wild life. At first glance you may think too small to spend more than an afternoon.....you would be wrong. Slow down and take it all in. Lovely!!

If you have a blue badge you can drive into the village, the National Trust Rep, who was in the Car Park did not tell us this (I use crutches and do not walk well), instead he tried to get us to go on the shuttle bus - £2 per person! There are a few little shops and the church... More
