A place to go to before you die. The seat of Christianity. Even though I am not that religious it is still a spiritual place. I would recommend reading the soft backed book 'Perigrini Lindisfarne' before you go as it is a very interesting read...More

I returned here after so many years and I still enjoyed my day trip. I came here to do some long exposure photography. It is a great cultural visit too. One has to take care of the tide timings.

Not much to see or do, but appreciate the history that's here. It's worth visiting just to say you have been and done it.

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

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.

We called in here whilst waiting for the causeway to clear and spent an informative and pleasant half hour with the very knowledgeable manageress. The shop has local information and attractive gifts.

The Lindisfarne Heritage Centre is a great little place which we happened upon whilst exploring Holy Island. Although small, it is very informative about the history of the Island. To be honest I feel I learnt more here then I did at the Priory itself....More
