The Holy IslandThe Holy Island
Holy Island is a must-visit on any break to Northumberland which enjoys a unique sense of isolation when cut off by the tide.
Steeped in religious history and culture, the island is the birthplace of the Lindisfarne Gospels but you don't need a religious reason to visit this area, with dramatic scenery provided by Lindisfarne Castle and surrounding wildlife creating wonderful photographic opportunities.
A trip to Holy Island is the highlight of any coach break to Northumberland.
