On the “pint-sized” Holy Island of Lindisfarne there are pubs, cafes and cultural landmarks such as the coastal Lindisfarne Castle and ancient Lindisfarne Priory to explore.

Visit Northumberland writes: “Always check safe crossing times before visiting Holy Island, as it becomes separated from the rest of the world and completely inaccessible twice a day due to the tide.

“Words cannot describe the magic of The Holy Island of Lindisfarne, particularly as you cross the causeway, admiring staggering views as you go, and feel as though you are entering a secret world as you approach the island.”

Get in touch with Berwick Tourist Information Centre who provide details of both the tides times and bus service to the island.

Paul Sweeney, Managing Director at Sky Mobile said: “It is important to be able to keep in touch when you’re exploring the picturesque locations we are lucky to have in the UK.

“With Sky Mobile providing 99% coverage you can ensure you can stay in contact as well as share the beautiful sights.”
