  • Although closed at the moment it looks as if this will be a great place to visit when it reopens. You can walk up to it but because of the scaffolding etc there is little to see at the moment.  more »
  • We went to Holy Isalnd to look at the castle but it is undergoing restoration and is closed to the public. I gues we could have checked before but there was nothing to say it was closed before we paid...  more »
  • Lovely place to walk on a sunny day. Great facilities and paths. All well laid out and maintained. Always nice to visit.  more »

  • Closed to the public. Until 2018. A beautiful well maintained castle. But I don't wish to give it a five star rating until the restoration work is done.
  • unfortunately conservation work is going on at the moment, so we couldn't go in and the outside is covered by a huge plastic roof (August 2017). But it is still easy to see how unique this building and its location are. That alone is worth seeing - combined with a short walk around Holy Island this is a lovely trip for a morning or afternoon. Check the the tide schedule!
  • Lovely scenery on beautiful Lindisfarne, go and enjoy it but check the tide times.
  • Undergoing renovation but still beautiful
  • great place to visit, ensure planning so you make it back in time before the tide comes in!
