Your final day's walk takes you to Holy Island, a site of much religious and historical signficance. Following the tide times which dictate a strict crossing window, you can walk to the island following either the road bridge or, if safe, the alternative Pilgram's Path across the tidal flats.

The final section of your walk is one of the most spectacular and unusual. The scenery is unique and although you follow the road for most of the way to Holy Island, the changing vistas and abundant birdlife will keep you occupied.

Holy Island is one of Europe’s most famous Christian places and it has a wealth of sites that relate to its eventful history. St Cuthbert’s name and life inspired the building of the Lindisfarne Priory which began in about 1120. There is also a castle which was ordered to be built by Henry VIII as Holy Island held great strategic importance centuries ago.
