VISIT THE LAST KINGDOM ON THE NORTHUMBERLAND COAST & EXPERIENCE BAMBURGH & LINDISFARNE

Holy Island Tour

The Holy Island of Lindisfarne, just off the coast of Northumberland, is a true magnet for visitors from far and wide. Intriguingly only accessible via a causeway at low tide twice a day, it was the cradle of English Christianity in Anglo Saxon times and has remained an important site of pilgrimage to this day.

Your journey follows the coastline of Northumberland, lined with impressive castles, charming fishing villages and stunning landscapes. You will even be able to spot the Farne Islands, a seabird haven, along the way. Enjoy miles of sandy beaches…

One of the highlights of your day is a visit to Bamburgh Castle and a visit to the exhibition dedicated to “The Last Kingdom”, the hit TV show and global phenomenon!

On your return, if time allows, a short detour via the hinterland offers a spectacular contrast to the serene coastal views with the Cheviot Hills looming among the surrounding moorland and a brief glimpse of the historic capital of the county, Alnwick and its spectacular castle, home to the Dukes of Northumberland for over 700 years.

Holy Island Tour: Pilgrim's Way
OPTIONAL: PILGRIM'S WAY TO HOLY ISLAND
Ever since 635, when King Oswald gave the Holy Island of Lindisfarne to St. Aidan to establish his monastery, the island has been a place of pilgrimage. The sight of the poles stretching across the sand and mud is one of the most iconic views in Northumberland and to walk the route away from the road and follow in the footsteps of our medieval ancestors is a wonderful experience.
