A trip to the beach is a must on the family to – do list for the half term holidays.
A Christmas trip to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne is a special experience, even with the Castle closed for the winter.
There are lots of walking routes on Holy Island and your dog is welcome to join you on the land around the castle. There are some changes to be aware of when you bring your four legged friend onto the island.
A poem celebrating Holy Island
Uncover Lindisfarne’s often-forgotten industrial past where a busy lime industry operated in the shadow of the castle in the late 19th century.
The tradition of using retired boats as sheds that goes back centuries, particularly on the east coast of England. The sheds on Holy Island though are probably the best surviving examples.
Join your guides, Barbie and Betty Lutyens, for an easy walk to explore the magnificent lime kilns, and stroll along grassy paths to the enchanting Jekyll garden.
