This is a unique place - accessible by a causeway that is only open at low tide, further from the mainland than St Michael's Mount in Cornwall. There are many attractions on the island and plenty of cafes. When I was there, all the cafes were busy, so it's worth taking a picnic if you don't want to depend upon... More

Its not for everyone, but I fulfilled a long-time wish by visiting and staying overnight on Lindisfarne so was to experience the island a different times of day and see it with the tide in and out. I was not disappointed and it just made me want to go back again for longer.

I visit Holy Island regularly during the year and I always find something interesting that I haven't noticed before. This time it was the old gravestone in St Mary's churchyard with the Skull and Crossbones. there is also a fossil beach on the east of the Island behind the Lime Kilns and the Newts in the Quarry. the pace of...

This is a beautiful small island, accessible part-time via a causeway. CHECK THE TIDE TABLES!!! Great walks around the coast and up to the castle and various look-out points. Beautiful old church. Great wild-life viewing places.

A great slice if history for those interested and plenty of open space for outdoor activities. Parking was quite easy when I visited, but watch out for the tides on the causeway.
