The Farne Islands lie two to three miles off the Northumberland coast midway between the fishing village of Seahouses and the magnificent Castle of Bamburgh. As well as being the most famous Sea Bird Sanctuary in the British Isles they also have a large colony of Atlantic or Grey Seals.
By boat – this excellent unforgettable trip lasts 4 hours including the 2 hours spent on the island. Commentary is given en route.
By car – Holy Island (Lindisfarne) is a tidal island and vehicles can only cross the causeway when the tide is open. Opening times vary significantly every day and you should familiarise yourself with the causeway opening times for the day of your visit!
