Skim over the sands and causeway to Holy Island and prepare to enter another world. Lying just a few miles off the Northumberland coast, Holy Island as seen on Robson Green's Tales from Northumberland is cut off twice-daily from the rest of the world by fast-moving tides. Both an island and a picturesque village, Holy Island carries a wealth of history within its tidal walls.
See one of the region’s most revered treasures Lindisfarne Priory. The epicentre of Christianity in Anglo Saxon times, Lindisfarne Priory was once the home of St Oswald. This serene setting was the birthplace of the Lindisfarne Gospels, one of the world’s most precious books.
Ransacked by marauding Viking raiders in the 8th century, the evocative ruins of Lindisfarne Priory includes the famous ‘rainbow bridge’ which spirals skywards with the ghost of a long-vanished tower.
Saunter along the bustling harbour of this colourful fishing village and browse an Aladdin’s Cave of shops in this popular seaside holiday resort.
Board a Billy Shiel or Serenity boat trip bound for the Farne Islands, one of the UK’s top wildlife experiences. During the breeding season around 150,000 seabirds vie for space here.
Get dive bombed by terns on Inner Farne and encounter curious grey seals that make up one of the country’s largest colonies.
