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.

Super historic site

28SAC, Cala d'Or, Spain
It had been 50 years since I was last here and it was just as impressive to me. A pleasant walk from Green Lane Bus park of around 20 minutes to the Castle. There was a talk on while we were there and plenty of information boards as you walk around. Really interesting if you like anything to do with St Cuthberts life and the Lindisfarne history.

Somewhat disappointing.

Teacoaster, London, United Kingdom
The island itself beautiful, the views up to and around the castle, stunning. The inside of the castle disappointing. Empty rooms, very little detail about the history, just very short bullet points. Certainly not worth the fee.

Strong hold or wat

Situated high on the point of island and by the look of it ad say a castle that would be hard to capture Inside displays outsatnding and at £9.50 per adult ..a costly day on top of the prices for other attractions Even tho had to visit as cant go rest of island and not the castle ...all in all a fantastic day on holy island ...and the weather was an abs scorcher so everybody happy

Much improved

It was 40 years since we visited Holy Island and were pleasantly impressed by the improvements made in that time. We found it to be much more commercialised but not to the detriment of its natural beauty or the quaintness of the buildings. Lots to see and explore in the time between tides when the causeway was passable. Despite the narrow streets in the town there was plenty of room for the many visitors and it didn’t have that crowded feel. The only negative was the public toilets at the car park on the edge of the town were grotty and could have done with a good clean and upgrade. Aside from that, glad we went back.

Great building
