Lindisfarne Priory

Museum Gallery

Experience the tranquillity of Lindisfarne Priory Set on a tidal island off the north east coast of England, Lindisfarne Priory has been drawing visitors to its shores for many centuries and it is not hard to see why. For Christians, it is the cradle of their religion, the burial place of St Cuthbert and a startlingly moving place to visit. For those who are not religious, it is quite simply one of the most tranquil, historic spots you could wish to spend time on. Originally home to the wonderful illuminated Lindisfarne Gospels (now in the British Library) and the site of the horrific Viking attacks, the priory is now a dreamy place where the seascape and light create stunning views across Northumberland's under-explored coast. Examine the ornate carvings in the extensive ruins and don't miss the fascinating museum nearby.
