Things to see and do while at Seahouses and nearby Bamburgh
A dramatic castle that shadows the village below. Gives great views of the landscape including views of the Farne Islands, Seahouses and Holy Island.
A lovely little village to spend an hour or two. The beach is a short walk away so that you can relax in the shadow of Bamburgh Castle.
A nice town that is home to a fantastic fish and chip shop called Pinnacles. There are trips out to the Farne islands and Holy Island from Seahouses. There are also trips that offer fishing and diving.
There are boat trips from Seahouses to Holy Island (Lindisfarne). Make sure you visit the Priory as it is full of history; including information about Saint Cuthbert who became a monk at the monastery. Make sure you take away some Mead, a wonderful honey based drink.
There is plenty of wildlife to watch out for, especially birds and grey seals.
If you are travelling by car to Holy Island, there is a causeway, which is generally open from about 3 hours after high tide until 2 hours before the next high tide, but the period of closure may be extended during stormy weather.
Always check the times that the causeway is open and closed; there have been many casualties where people have travelled across when the tide has come in leaving cars stranded in the water.
If you fancy a boat trip to the Farne Islands, there are plenty on offer from Seahouses. While travelling to the Farnes, you will see wonderful views of Bamburgh Castle. There is plenty of birds and seals to look out for, Some of the trips take you onto the islands where you can see the birds and seals up close. Take a hat during the breeding season as some of the birds are protective of their nests.
