Holy island feels like just that, as soon as I go to the island I feel the outside world and all its worries vanish . It's a beautiful place lots of wonderful dunes and plenty of beach to walk along , check tide times always

The island can only be visited at low tide so make sure you check the times before you cross a board is located just before the crossing which is easy to understand. The island is a lovely walk with plenty of history.

Went over to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. A pleasant little place spent the day , had a wander and visited the castle. We also had a wander over the dunes and enjoyed some well needed peace and quiet.

just love this place , the only thing you have to watch are the tides, but this adds to the Islands atmosphere, the castle was closed but we wlked up to it from the car park park, had a good look round the old priory, took loads of pictures of the stunning views , you can visit time after time...

I just love this place - especially away from the village centre. The sea, the sand dunes and the wild life all work together to make a tranquil and relaxing day.

The castle was an impressive structure but due to a wedding being held within, no access was permitted. Having said that, I enjoyed roaming around the exterior and saw some stunning views. The Priory was amazing but you could view most of its elements without paying the entry fee.

If you stay near Lindisfarne put some time aside to visit this island. Just be careful with the tides because you can just reach the island in low tides. There runs a bus from Berwick-upon-Tweed bit make sure you check the date and time of our visit. There is an interesting castle to visit, the Priory with an excellent exhibition... More
