Drove up to Alnwick from Liverpool with a view to visiting Holy Island whilst there. Not dissappointed at all. Beautiful place to explore and a nice area to explore for walks. The thing I noticed once across the causeway was the silence. It was paradise...More

Driving across the causeway to holy island takes you to another world, a visit to the castle now managed by the National Trust is worth a visit as are the priory ruins, there are a couple of pubs on the island where you can get...More

Always a pleasure coming to this lovely peaceful place. Weather good and not so busy. Best time to visit is when the children are in school because it's not so busy. Holiday time is very busy .

Most people go to Lindisfarne for the history and culture - the Priory, the Parish Church and the Castle (modern - Lutyens) and Castle gardens. And nothing wrong with that! But if the tides allow a longer visit the circuit of the island - visiting...More

You did not use my business Holy Island Hikes which offers guided walks on Holy Island. Your review would be more appropriate for Lindisfarne Castle which is run by the national trust.

We walked the Pilgrim's Way across the sands at dawn with Mary. She was easy company, very well informed about the history, geography, birdlife and modern life on Lindisfarne and was cheerful, punctual and friendly. It was so much better than driving across the causeway...More

Perhaps the use of 'ONLY' was misleading in my description. This was an emotional comment as the walk is great and to be recommended but of course a useless comment for those with mobility difficulties.
