Places to Visit
Only accessible by a mile-long causeway, Lindisfarne, or Holy Island, is a haven abounding with religious history.
Holy Island is popular for its signs of the past dating as far back as 6AD, where you can still see the remains of an original seventh-century monastery. You will also be stood in the exact place where one of Britain's most treasured possessions, the Lindisfarne Gospels, came to be. If that's not enough, just make your way to Lindisfarne Castle, a romantic 16th century castle with spectacular views for miles around, set to reopen in April 2018 following extensive restoration work.
