Holy Island of Lindisfarne + Castle Tour

 

Enquire for booking

Visit the Holy Island of Lindisfarne to explore the history of St Aidan and St Cuthbert who brought Christianity to our great county through the Lindisfarne Gospels. The Priory demonstrates the ancient tapestry where the monks used to preach the gospels and a visit to St Aidan’s Winery for some fudge and Lindisfarne Mead will certainly brighten up your day. Then we can visit at least one of the three following great castles in Northumberland.

  • Alnwick Castle – Home to the 12th Duke and Duchess of Northumberland and filming locations for Harry Potter, Downton Abbey and many more.
  • Bamburgh Castle – Perhaps the most impressive looking castle in Northumberland, perched 45m above sea level on a plateau of volcanic rock.
  • Dunstanburgh Castle – Once the largest castle in Northumberland built as a strategic defence for the ongoing battle of the Scottish borders; it now lies in ruin on the cliffside of the coast stretching from Craster to Embleton.
