Places to visit; Holy Island
Next on our list for local areas to explore is Holy Island.
Enjoy the excitement of crossing the causeway (always check the tides first!), and discover the history of the islands - the founding of the priory in 635, the story of St. Cuthbert, the Lindisfarne Gospels and Viking raids on the island. Explore the rocky shore and the dunes, enjoy the birdlife and of course stop off for a cup of tea or a drop of something stronger..
