Today's walk takes you to Holy Island, a site of much religious and historical significance. 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.

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. Please make sure you check the tide times for getting on and off Lindisfarne. You can check the safe crossing times on the following website: https://holyislandcrossingtimes.northumberland.gov.uk/. We recommend you print these off and have them with you whilst walking.

When walking on minor roads without pavement it is important to take good care. Although the roads and lanes can be quiet it's always best to walk on the right to face any oncoming traffic and make yourself as visible as possible.

Tochtbeschrijving

These maps and routes are designed to be used in conjunction with our traditional documentation. We have recently embarked on a conversion initiative to bring the two elements together, and this itinerary will be covered in due course.

In the meantime, using the two elements alongside each other should go a long way to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and problem free day.

Uitrusting

Good comfortable boots or walking shoes are recommended. The ground can be quite soft and the paths are well used by walkers and riders. Whilst the terrain is not particularly difficult it can be muddy with some waterlogged stretches after heavy rain. Walking poles are an option if preferred. The British weather is changeable so waterproofs should also be carried just in case. 

Ensure your phone is fully charged; if you doubt the battery will last throughout the hike, it might be beneficial to bring a power bank.
