Good views of estuary and surrounds. Information signs inside to tell you what you are looking at. Tourist info revolves mainly around the religion on the island and its nature. You get this repeated numerous times around the island.

An easy wander offered excellent views of the island and the coast. High view point and also whilst there there was an archaeological dig going on for a previously unknown early church. Very interesting. Not a big area but worth a visit

As we were staying on the island after the tide had come in in the Reserve was quiet and we had plenty of time to admire the views on a clear if windy day

Very wet and windy day so the walk up to the viewing tower was interesting to say the least but well worth the climb. Very informative displays within and it has 360 degrees views with boards explaining the view, subject to shifting tides!

Pleasant visit on a nice sunny day but I suspect can be very busy in the high season, esp with the limited access-time due to the tides. Terrific views from the observatory, and basking seals and waders are plentiful.

We explored here on a lovely sunny Sunday. A great way to see some of our native species. Some good info points as well.

Car parking is available just after the causeway and can be paid by credit card. The walk starts back towards the causeway and takes you over windswept bays towards the castle.

Once we had travelled up to the area of Northumbria we HAD to go to The Holy Island of Lindisfarne where we experienced a wonderful trip through history of the beginning of Christianity throughout the British Isles. The island is accessed by a causeway that...More

Hi, Can you tell me what seaweed grows around Lindisfarne please and is it edible. Or does it have too much iodine in it or even radioactive material from the nuclear power station?
