On visiting "Holy Island" on a boat trip along with 40 other folk we arrived to find the attractions closed. This apparently was due to the state of the tide. Both The National Trust and English Heritage could not be bothered to accommodate a boat...More

Dropped in here during a stop to Lindisfarne. Lots of history here and interesting information about the island before you have a look around.

A good way to get a background to the Holy Isle, with simple, but informative displays explaining the history. Also, there’s a neat little gift shop with souvenirs for all ages.

If you want to visit just to say you've been to Holy Island then that's fine, just don't expect to find a lot here to keep you occupied for hours, there's a nice walk to the castle (which I didn't go in due to the...More
