Christmas and the Farne Islands

Although you can't land on the Islands in winter, you can still enjoy some wildlife spotting and Christmas shopping.

Did you know that although you can't land on the Farne Islands in winter, if the weather permits the boats still sail around the Farnes? What's more, December is a good time to see seal pups from the boats. So why not wrap up warm and start an untraditional Christmas tradition of seal spotting? 

The seal theme could extend to your Christmas shopping too. A trip to our shop in Seahouses is an enjoyable and original way of finding decorations, food and presents. There are seal and puffin toys for the kids; books for nature buffs; outdoor gear for explorers; kitchenware for cooks; tools for gardeners; and more.
