Beautiful , peaceful place to visit. Be aware of the tide times and you can plan your visit to spend as much time as you like there. As this island is cut off by water at high tide, you could get trapped on the island if you dont plan it properly. There are cafes, walks, the Castle , toilets and... More

We have visited the island several times over the past few years. You need to check the safe timetable crossings. We visited this time sat 27th june, there is ample car parking. There is so much to see and do on this Island. Visit the priory steeped in history. Either a walk to the castle which we did. Or take... More

All the reviewers that mention the supposed spiritual nature of the place must have a good imagination. It's highly commercialised right from the moment you arrive at the car park. Almost every garden seems to be given over to selling something and there are numerous burger and chip vans. The driver of the shuttle bus from the car park to... More

Take off your shoes at low tide and walk there over the sand. Just do it. You won't regret it. Just take care with the tide times.

Time your visit to get across the inlet without washing out to sea! Pretty cool just to do that. Lovely town, castle and museum, with great pubs.

I had heard so much about Holy Island, all good, so whilst in Northumberland for a few days we went to visit. Wow! It's a must see. There's just something about the place, a true sense of calm and peace. This despite the many visitors. Just sit and absorb the atmosphere, you won't be disappointed.

Took boat trip from Seahouses rather than drive across the causeway. Glad we did. Saw dolphins, seals and thousands of seabirds. The Billy Shiells boat trip was excellent and went into many coves and really felt at one with the sealife. Thoroughly recommended. The spirituality of the island really finished off a great day.

What an absolutely lovely day out. We travelled with friends and planned as much as we could into the day dependant on tide times. My wife and friend walked along the poles to the island whilst my friends partner and I drove the causeway. It took them around 35/40 minutes but what a great experience which took in the quite...
