Skim over the sands and causeway, when the tide is out, to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne and prepare to enter another world.
Lying just a few miles off the Northumberland coast Holy Island, and its iconic Lindisfarne Castle, carries a wealth of history within its tidal walls. 

Lindisfarne Castle was built in 1550 around the time that Lindisfarne Priory went out of use, to defend a harbour sheltering English ships during border skirmishes with Scotland. Stones from the Priory, which was ransacked by marauding Viking raiders in the 8th century before being rebuilt, were used to build the Castle.

Apart from its historical pedigree, Holy Island has an exciting and varied array of wildlife. Its island status protects tidal mudflats, saltmarshes and dunes which together form the Lindisfarne National Nature Reserve. Rare plants and an abundance of food supplies attract visiting birds from thousands of miles away.

In the autumn pale-bellied brent geese fly in from Svalbard (Spitsbergen), pink-footed and greylag geese, widgeon, grey plovers and bar-tailed godwits are just some of the islands other visitors. Grey seals bob in the waters and can be spotted sunning themselves on the sands, joined by the occasional common seal.

Holy Island is also close to other towns and villages along the Heritage Coast of Northumberland with Berwick 13 miles north, Bamburgh 15 miles south, and Seahouses and Beadnell some 20 miles to the south. The Northumberland National Park and the Cheviot Hills are also within easy driving distance.
