Holy Island of Lindisfarne
Just 3 miles wide and 1.5 miles long, the Holy Island of Lindisfarne is a small yet mighty piece of Northumberland's heritage.
Marooned off the North East coast and only accessible by causeway at specific times of the day, Lindisfarne is best visited on weekends when the Lindisfarne Priory is open to visitors.
The crumbling archways and haunting ruins are all that remain of the priory that was founded by St Aidan in AD 635, which was mercilessly ransacked by Vikings in the 8th century.
Lindisfarne Castle and its Gertrude Jekyll Garden, Lime Kilns and shop are accessible.
Enjoy superb scenery around the island, spot seabirds on the Lindisfarne National Nature Reserve and look out for seals in the surrounding waters.
