Reviewed 8 July 2014

Beautiful scenery castle worth a visit. Take the time to explore the island - check out the tide times first.

“A pleasant afternoon spent here”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 via mobile

Had a nice time in Lindisfarne, the safe period was between 12.00 and 20.00 today. We walked from the car park to the castle which was an easy stroll. Very useful to have the use of a free locker whilst inside. The castle was interesting and well laid out. There were NT volunteers there who were wildlife experts. They had very powerful telescopes for viewing the seals on a sandbank. We would never have known they were there without their guidance. Also learnt about fulmar birds and saw a pair, one in a nest in a wall. We took the shuttle bus back which is a useful extra for just £1. The cafés in the village were either busy or not that special. Was hoping to find a pretty tearoom. A pleasant afternoon spent here and still felt peaceful despite it being quite busy.

“Lovely but too crowded”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

We recently spent a good half day on Lindisfarne. We were very lucky with the weather as it was glorious, however considering it was a week day early July and schools still open the castle was very crowded. If you want to walk though you can escape the crowds. We the went to the village and it wasn't too crowded there. We had a lovely lunch at The Manor Hotel and bought some lovely artwork. Overall a wonderful experience and I have left several things to go back for another time, more off season and hope it isn't quite so crowded. Definitely worth a visit but do be prepared for crowds.

“Spent the whole day on Holy Island”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

You have to watch the tide charts to be sure you can get on and off the island safely, but we went pretty soon after the causeway was safe to travel and stayed all day. Wonderful sights and sounds.

“"Picturesque Village & Castle..........Holy Island!"”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

Holy Island is an island and picturesque village. The tip of the island is where Lindisfarne Castle stands in all it's majesty. Very photogenic! Lindisfarne village is something to see, so make sure to make a day of it! There are neat little shops to explore and great fish-n-chips!! Enjoy!!
