Peaceful island. Despite the crowds of the May half term holiday. Unspoilt beaches, beautiful old harbour. Fairly easy to park

As with Bamburgh and Berwick-Upon-Tweed, first time back here since 2019, and still a lovely place to visit. Walked along the coastel path to the nature reserve, via the sand dunes, and what great walk it is. Saw some deers and quite a few hairy caterpillers nesting in the grass, had to look very carefully to see them. Walked as far as Emmanuel Head and the small beach near there, spent over 2 hours there. Really lovely. Then walked back along the coastel path back to the village for coffee and cake. Spent the last hour sitting at the harbour enjoying the view towards the castle. All in all, very enjoyable day out.

A day just isn't enough to take in all that Lindisfarne has to offer. A spectacular castle, spiritual priory, carribbean beating beaches, nature galore ... this is a MUST for anyone visiting Northumberland! Forget other off shore causeway islands, Lindisfarne shines brighter than all. Perfection!

A beautiful Island, gorgeous scenery, lovely walks.
Children loved it.
Toilets however were horrendous, filthy, no water in one. Soap but no water! The other toilets should be condemned, not fit for use. What is the car park monies being spent on. Need a toilet at the car park.
When will tourist sites get there act together Iver visitor toilets. We all have to go!

A new vista as you traverse the area. So much to be seen and experienced. Can be done between the tides, however, book an overnight stay to enjoy fully and not be worrying about tide times.

This was a long awaited visit. The routes and information boards were clear, helpful and clearly marked. The shawline provided opportunities to see a large number of seals in the sea together with Gillimots. Along the shawline you can see oyster catchers and waders near the small harber.

The island was much bigger than I expect. I has pictured something more like St Michael's Mount in Cornwall. There's easy car parking, plenty to see and a nice walk to the castle.

A beautiful two-hours relaxing on the beach and watching the seals and the birds just off the beach. Stunning turquoise waters and fairly quiet away from the tourists.
Tranquil and peaceful just to gather my thoughts.

This is known as Holy Island but the National True has utterly ruined it and rendered it Unholy. Tacky souvenir shops, tacky cafes, car parks (including disabled car park) a long walk from the castle. The only saving grace was the intriguing drive over the causeway at low tide.

Ok so my only advice is, make sure you check tidal times so you can cross causeway and that anything else you want to see, priory, castle and/or winery is open before setting off. That said we walked around the island, we did approx 7.5kms including priory and it was such a great walk, views were great. We stopped at a little cafe and filled our tanks with much needed sustenance and wandered a bit more around this delightful island. Look out for the organic ice cream shop which also sells fudge, the sour raspberry and ginger ice cream was superb!
