In the footsteps of the saints


Few people fail to be affected by the atmosphere and presence of this walk.

Holy Island was one of the earliest places in England to adopt Christianity, but any visitor will sense the oneness with nature as we walk across the tidal estuary towards Lindisfarne Priory.

  • The route is subject to tidal restrictions and start times must be observed

  • Many walking the estuary do so barefoot. Others choose wellingtons or waterproof walking boots

  • Once on the island you will have time to explore before returning to the start by car

  • Duration of walk (start to finish back at your own vehicle) -  around 4 hours

  • Length of walk - 4 miles. (easy)

  • Cost - Adult £25

                  Child  £10
