We visited Lindisfarne on 15/7/14 and were fortunate it was a wonderfully sunny day. We did a walk round the island. The beaches were amazing and so is the scenery and views of Bamburgh and the Farne islands. The castle was a bit disappointing (much more interesting from the outside then from the inside) but everything else was well worth... More

I haven't a lot of time to put everything down at the moment. Suffice it to say there's a certain magic here and it's a "must do". The atmosphere and "feel" of this place is incredible. I'm certainly looking forward to going back there soon with my wife to spend 3 or 4 days on the island and find time... More

Holy Island is well worth a visit in its own right, due to the history, the ruins and the castle. But the fact that you have to drive across the sea to get to it adds to the magic. We were fortunate that the causeway opened mid-morning and to drive along the freshly appeared causeway towards Lindisfarne rearing up in... More

I wondered if I wanted to go this time. It was my third time, my wife's second time and the friends we went with had been there once and never respectively. I was so glad I went. The castle has one of my favourite rooms in the whole of the UK (the sitting room), I would just love to be... More

Holy Island is another name for this, it is absolutely wonderful. The ruins are great , it is self guided, you can feel the history here. It is a gem that some might over look. We also visited the castle and so interesting. The small community is so quaint I wanted to stay longer.The view of the sea was spectacular,... More

Very quiet place, lovely for peace and quiet but it's a very small place, not somewhere I could personally stay for a long time.

Firstly check tide times before you travel. You reach the island via a causeway that floods at high tide. When we visited we arrived at the island at 10.30 or so and the place was packed with tourists and coach parties. The tide came in at 13.45 but by then a fair few of the tourists had left. This is...

Visited this beautiful little place July27, 2014 and had a great time exploring. Was only there for a few hours but hope to stay overnight next time we visit. Plenty to see and do while you are there.

A fascinating visit to the castle on Holy Island and wonderful views. You have to limit the time of the visit because of the tide but it still leaves enough time to appreciate all the island has to offer.

Lindisfarne Castle is the centerpiece of Holy Island and the key reason for our visit. Tucked away on the east of the island, it is maintained by the National Trust and is one of the more unique (in a good way!) of their properties. The castle is a converted armory - access for people with disabilities looked a bit tricky... More
