Cut off twice daily by the North Sea, drive across the causeway to where a priory, castle, celebrated gardens and a picture-perfect village lie within this island’s tidal walls.  

Visit the famous Rainbow Bridge at the evocative ruins of Lindisfarne Priory, birthplace of the Lindisfarne Gospels, one of the world’s most precious books. 

Wander through the village, stopping off to sample a glass of Lindisfarne Mead. 

Climb the hill to Lindisfarne Castle for wraparound views to Bamburgh Castle, the Farne Islands and up coast to Scotland. 

Visit local hospitality beacon, The Lindisfarne Inn, at nearby Beal, which offers good value accommodation too. 

A word of warning: Be sure to check the tide timetables before crossing the causeway.
