Detailed opening times

The opening times for Lindisfarne Castle are dictated by the Holy Island causeway, which twice a day is covered by the sea. Our detailed opening times can be found by clicking the following link - please note the safe crossing times for the day you intend to visit.


Many couples choose this unique, romantic Castle as their wedding venue

Lindisfarne is often booked for weddings on Mondays, which means the Castle is closed to the public. If you plan to visit on a  Monday please check our opening arrangements first; call 01289 389244

More than a Castle

If you do happen to visit or are planning a visit when the Castle is closed, you can still come onto the property and enjoy the Gertrude Jekyll garden, lime kilns and headland. There is also more to see on Holy Island.
