  • Currently closed for 18 months refurbishing and covered with scaffolding. Will be great once completed, etc... but at the moment, just a building site.  more »

  • One of my favourite castles because of where it is. Make sure you check the tide schedule so you don't get stuck on Holy Island. The history here is a wonderful story and worth the time to find out about. The church and many other places on the island are all part of the puzzle of St. Aidan and St. Cuthbert. The drive over the causeway is also a great experience, every time I've managed to spot either seals or interesting birds!
  • This castle is by far one of the oldest I've ever stepped in and definitely worth a look... The view from here is amazing! You can see Bambara castle from here, and the town of Lindisfarne. They have people within the castle who answer any questions you have and will tell you stories about the castle. If you'd rather just explore the castle then you are free to do so.
  • Fantastic. Ancient. Historic. Well worth taking a boat from Seahouses instead of going by car to visit the island.
  • Lovely little castle overlooking Lindisfarne. The views from the open balconies the top of the castle as great.
  • Take your boots and coat but no brolly. An excellent day out and we'll worth the effort.
