Getting to Holy Island

Royal Border Bridge Berwick

Royal Border Bridge, Berwick

The East Coast Main Line between Durham and Berwick was recently voted the most scenic rail route in Britain. So what better way to visit Holy Island than by train? Within two hours you can get from Durham to Holy Island enjoying breath-taking scenery along the way.

From the shadow of Durham Cathedral you can travel in style to Newcastle taking in striking views of the famous Tyne Bridges. As your train snakes further northwards, the unspoilt Northumberland coastline begins to draw you in and Holy Island comes into view. Crossing the magnificent Royal Border Bridge, over the River Tweed and into Berwick Railway Station, Holy Island is only a short-bus ride away.

Perrymans Logo

Look out for the Perrymans bus!

As the causeway to Holy Island is tidal, so there is a different bus timetable every day. To plan your journey, visit www.perrymansbuses.co.uk where connecting trains from Durham are shown along with the bus times.

By car: Holy Island is 70 miles north of Durham and 60 miles south of Edinburgh and then 5 miles off the A1, follow signs to Beal. Holy Island is linked to the mainland by a causeway which is covered by the sea twice a day. Safe crossing times are available on www.holyisland.northumberland.gov.uk or contact Berwick Tourist Info Centre for details. Don’t chance your luck – check before you drive. Better still, leave the car at Berwick and join the bus.

Laura Lobster
Attraction
Amble

A female lobster can carry 20,000 eggs under her body for over 9 months and after all that effort only one egg will survive to adulthood. We think she needs a little help! At the hatchery we take local female lobsters carrying eggs (known as berried hens) and capture the eggs as she releases them. The really dangerous time for young lobsters in the sea is the first few weeks after hatching when they are a tasty treat for many other sea creatures. We keep the lobster larvae protected in our tanks and release them when they are safe to return to the sea, then they can burrow into the seabed to hide from things that might eat them.

The hatchery has been set up to be as interactive, informative and engaging as possible for all ages. Visitors can observe the whole process from the eggs hatching to the young lobsters being ready for release. Kids can get hands on experience with our touch tank where our hatchery guides can introduce you to some local creatures.

Come along to the Northumberland Seafood Centre and Hatchery to learn about the lifecycle of a lobster. We have a few lobster related gifts for you to take home too! Or you can combine your visit with a trip to our fresh bar and take home some tasty fish, or even a lobster for your tea! We’re open 7 days per week during peak season from 10am to 4pm. (Please refer to our website for opening times outside this period).
