Location has always been the main attraction for the owners and occupiers of Lindisfarne Castle.

From a former fort to the holiday home of a wealthy Edwardian bachelor seeking a quiet retreat from London, the idyllic location of the Castle has intrigued and inspired for centuries.

The renovation by Arts and Crafts architect Edwin Lutyens both hides and emphasises the old fort, all the while overlooking Gertrude Jekyll's enchanting walled garden and the unexpected grandeur of the Lime Kilns, an imposing and striking reminder of Lindisfarne's industrial past.

Enjoyed the walk round although a lot of people was still pleasant.Unfortunately castle is covered in scaffolding as being restored at the moment so not good for photos. Nice crab sandwiches if a bit expensive

Interesting Edwardian Interiors

Sophie39, South Lincolnshire
Very much enjoyed visiting the castle, not on this visit but a couple of years ago, really interesting Edwardian Interiors and fantastic views from the battlements. Scaffolding over the castle at the moment.

Beautiful views

Anne B, Castletown, United Kingdom
Be aware the castle is closed until at least spring g 2018 but talking g to locals the feeling is that it will be closed for a lot longer. Having said that the scaffold round the castle is sight worth seeing!!

Closed for rennovation work until March 2018

lonewolf44, London, United Kingdom
It's covered in scaffolding and closed to the public while it is treated to rennovations after years of being buffeted by the elements coming off the North Sea but it's still a dramatic sight, rising up on a rocky outcrop just a short (clearly signposted) walk from the carpark/village. Although you can't go inside until March 2018 (according to the signs) you can still walk round it and drink in the fantastic views. Go at dusk for the incredible skies and light.
