Stunning location, well worth a visit!

Okay it was a very windy day, but that didn't stop us having a good time on the island! The place has many sights to see and is worth spending a day to take it all in! Great views... read more

This is a lovely island to walk around with great beaches on the Eastern side views of the Farne Islands and Northhumbrian Coast including Bamburgh Castle. Lindisfarne Castle is worth a visit (NT) and the Abbey complex . Watch out for the tide times.

Breathtaking scenery. Visited castle, priory and all local gift shops. Tried some local mead and brought some home for the family.

We recently spent a good half day on Lindisfarne. We the went to the village and had a lovely lunch at The Manor Hotel and bought some lovely artwork. Overall a wonderful experience and I have left several things to go back for another time.

We came back in the dark on the causeway before tide had gone out completely following a local-scary! Lovely area-dont miss Coastguards Lookout where you can go inside. Nice very very small cafe in the Post Office but not impressed with lady who was putting cakes away with her bare hands

Remember to check the tide times before driving across the causeway. There is plenty to see on the island and lots of seals to see on the shoreline when the tide is out

Went last weekend for the first time despite passing by on the way to Scotland for years. Absolutely loved it , the castle , the abbey, the walks and the views . Please be aware though we found a lot of the shops and businesses closed went the tide came in.

I live not far from holy island and no matter how many times I visit I'm blown away at its beauty. I stayed in a beautiful cottage for the weekend and the romance of feeling stranded on an island is lovely. Once your on there and the causeway closes you have nowhere to go. There is a little castle, a... More

The tides times dictated our visit which sadly meant the castle was closing when we arrived, however being out of season the Island was peaceful and we were able to enjoy a stroll around the beautiful church - accompanied by a rather lovely & chatty ginger cat - and exterior of the ruined priory. Crossing the causeway is amazing.....
