The Holy Island of Lindisfarne stands as a tidal island that becomes cut-off from England twice a day. A quaint location with a tiny population of 160 people, the island contains natural wonder and a rich, if not bloody history. "The Holy Island of Lindisfarne" survived a bloodthirsty and murderous attack on the monastery from the Vikings in 793 CE. If you like nature and serenity, spend some time walking, bird-watching, or fishing in the remote northern part of the island. If you prefer religion, history, or the arts, visit the monastery and the 16th-century castle, both of which are located on the southern part of the island. Remember to check the tides before you access the island, especially if you intend to visit for only one day.
