On entry we were told that all rooms were still empty of furniture but there was a display of art. This turned out to be blankets of various colours over wooden frames !! Not worth the trouble it took to get out to the castle....More

Was really looking forward to visiting Lindisfarne Castle, having checked the website late last year which inferred the renovation work was to be finished by April we booked accommodation. On arrival we found the castle still covered in scaffolding and a tarpaulin and most people...More

This is not a castle it’s a house on a rock. If I had paid to go in here I would have demanded my money back. There only a few rooms to look at. No way this can be called a castle. National trust you...More

Don't go inside the castle. It's not worth it at the moment. You'll be charged £7-30 entry free or you can pay over £8 if you want to gift aid (not sure how that works) and there is nothing inside to look at as the...More

We are at the very end of an 18 month project to conserve the castle for future generations. The work has been significant, overcoming years of water ingress to the building. As you can imagine with a project of this size and scale work does...More

Don’t be fooled by the National trust leaflet which states the renovations of the castle are complete. The castle is covered in scaffolding and it doesn’t look like it’s coming down any time soon.More

After parking the car in a large car park, you can either walk or catch a bus/taxi to the castle itself. On the day we visited the weather was glorious so we walked. When we arrived, there is an uphill incline to walk to enter...More

Fantastic location. That's about it really. As we entered we overheard a chap ask for the comments book because he considered the art installation to be "a travesty". Well he was wrong. It wasn't even a travesty. It was some incomplete wooden cube frames with...More

Visited on a windy but gorgeously sunny day. The bagpipes were playing and the piper bedecked in his finery was a delight I felt stirred and joyful all at once. The castle still sheathed in scaffolding ( delay in dismantling because of owls) demonstrated a...More

The web page said that the renovations would be completed by now...they are not. Full price still charged to see basically a load of old blankets draped over wooden frames. Yes they are probably hand dyed using natural fibres etc....but they still ended up looking...More

Due to the bad weather in the winter time the furniture had not been replaced. Instead was a modern art& craft exhibition. I am of an age where wooden stands and blankets in varying shades eludes me. I was extremely disappointed especially as the price...More
