Lindisfarne Priory


Originally home to the Lindisfarne Gospels and the site of grisly Viking attacks, Lindisfarne Priory sits offshore on Holy Island and is reached by a causeway at low tide.  It was an important centre of early Christianity, and the home of St Cuthbert, and you can marvel at the ornate carvings on the extensive ruins of the monastic buildings and enjoy the serenity that first drew the monks and saints of Anglo-Saxon and medieval Northumbria here.
