A Lindisfarne Christmas
A Christmas trip to Holy Island is a very special experience. Though the Castle is closed for the winter, there’s still a lot to see and do.
Christmas shopping becomes a pleasure at our shop on Marygate in the village: as well as Christmas cards, decorations and produce, we've got lots of inspirtation for presents - plants for gardeners; books for history buffs; gear for ramblers; toys for children; kitchenware for cooks; and more.
Or what better place for a get-away-from-it-all walk than an island cut off from the mainland by the tides? Whilst the Castle is closed, the land around it is open, so your walk could take in the small but perfectly formed walled garden and the extraordinary Lime Kilns telling of Lindisfarne’s industrial past out on the headland of Castle Point. Gazing out to sea will blow the cobwebs away, or you can enjoy the views down the coast or across to the Farne Islands - you might even spot a seal or two.
