What to expect?

Highlights

Bamburgh Castle

Bamburgh has been inhabited since the stone age with its prominent rocky outcrop being a prime location for people to settle to provide defense. It was the fortress of the Kings of Northumbria who lived and resided at it as their capital. Following the Norman Invasion, a Castle has stood on the site.

Lindisfarne Priory

Lindisfarne began as the Celtic island called Medcaut. The Irish mission to Northumbria from Iona chose it as the site of their monastery and there was a famous mixing of Irish and Anglo-Saxon Art on the island. The monastery was attacked by the Viking raid in 793AD that was said to be the trigger of the Viking age. The current ruins of the Priory were built in the middle ages and gave the island its famous name: Holy Island.
