Location description from manager

The England region

Holy Island is a tidal island situated just off the North Northumberland coast south of Berwick-upon-Tweed. Access to the island is via a paved causeway which is submerged in the sea twice every 24 hours, thus cutting Holy Island off from the mainland.

Historic attractions, outdoor activities including stunning walks and birdwatching, craft centres and heritage centres as well as fine pubs, tearooms and restaurants are all on Holy Island.

Holy Island

The two famous historic attractions on Holy Island are Lindisfarne Priory (English Heritage) and Lindisfarne Castle (National Trust). Lindisfarne Priory, founded by St Aidan in AD 635 is an integral building in the context of early Christianity in Britain and is still a site of pilgrimage for many. Lindisfarne Castle situated spectacularly on part of the hard rocky outcrop of the Great Whin Sill dates much later than the priory from the 16th century.

Other attractions on Holy Island include the St Aidan's Winery which produces the delicious and not to be missed Lindisfarne Mead as well as Lindisfarne Preserves. You can take a tour of the winery showroom and enjoy free samples. The onsite Lindisfarne Craft Shop sells Lindisfarne Mead as well as a variety of English and Fruit Wines, British Beers and Ciders and fine Northumberland specialities such as Craster Kippers and Northumberland Cheeses.

When the tide is out the beautiful beach areas of Lindisfarne are exposed and these are popular for both walking and horse riding. Birdwatching, fishing and watersports such as sea kayaking are also popular around The Holy Island of Lindisfarne.

Safe crossing times to Holy Island across the causeway are listed by date on both Northumberland County Council's website and the Holy Island Community Guide website.

Please note tide tables are advisory and during bad weather and strong winds tide times may vary slightly. Well worth doing is to check the Safe Crossing times in advance of your visit. A tide timetable is also located at the Beal car park situated just before access on to the causeway.
