Holy Island ( Lindisfarne ) in general Reviews
Newest Review: ... the causeway (which is about 3 miles long) you come to a public car park on the left. If you're staying on the Island don't pay for long stay as when the causeway closes you'll probably find plenty of places to park your car for free. When you come out of the car park you turn left and walk towards the village. The first hotel you come to is the Lindisfarne Hotel, which looks quite big. If you continue walking you turn left into Marygate and the Ship Inn is about 2/3 of the way down. If you continue straight on you come to the Crown and Anchor Pub and the Manor House Hotel. Turning right brings you to the Lindisfarne Heritage Centre. ... more

My boyfriend took me to Holy Island In October as I'd always wanted to go there - I was not disappointed. We booked to stay at the Ship Inn on Marygate for 2 nights. Getting there from the south was dead easy - up the A1 about an hour past Newcastle and then turn right (signposted) and keep going until you cross the causeway. The causeway is open at set times and these were provided by the hotel we stayed in. The times vary on a day to day basis so if you want to go just check the times first, although they're well publicised on boards leading up to the causeway and on the Lindisfarne website but if you book to stay on the Island they will advise you of the times ...

Having visited Lindesfarne a number of times I am always in awe of it's natural beauty. If you are thinking of making a visit to the island then you must consider the tide, it can catch you out very quickly, always give yourself plenty of time to get across the causeway, as at high tide the road is covered by the sea. There is a refuge halfway across which is a hut on stilts, but your car wouldn't be much good after a few hours submerged in salt water. Once on the island there isn't really anywhere to drive to, so you have to park the car and walk. This adds to the peace and quiet of the whole island, it really is a place to get away from it all. ... Read the complete review

Holy Island, formerly Lindisfarne was given its name in the 11th century because it was one of the main centres of Christianity in the Dark Ages. The island was given to St Aiden in 635AD. In the Church of St Mary's there is a copy of the famous Lindisfarne Gospels and next to the church are the remains of Lindisfarne Priory built in 1083. However it is Lindisfarne Castle which dominates the island,originally a Tudor Fort. From the upper Battery there are fine views over the island and the Farne Islands. Holy Island is reached by a causeway which is covered by tides twice a day. Before setting out on a journey here you need to check the tide ... Read the complete review
