iVisit.... Lindisfarne Castle

  • Lindisfarne Castle Holy Island, Berwick-Upon-Tweed Northumberland, TD15 2SH United Kingdom (map)

Romantic 16th-century castle with spectacular views

This 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.

Please note the Castle is closed for conservation work. Before visiting the Island, please check the tide timetable to see safe crossing times for the Holy Island causeway.
