Tour Bamburgh Castle and the Legendary Holy Island

Explore this fortress town and neighbouring island, places of military importance and religious influence since the 7th century.

Ever since pre-historic times, Bamburgh and Lindisfarne have had human settlements. As a fortress of the Kingdom of Northumbria, Bamburgh was the centre of the largest kingdom in England during the 7th and 8th century. In the Middle Ages, the castle was built as an important fortress against Scottish attack – eventually developing into the impressive fortification you see today.

Lindisfarne is famous for both the Lindisfarne Gospels and being one of the first locations in the United Kingdom to be attacked by the Vikings. It is called the cradle of English Christianity, recognising the importance of the monastery in the Dark Ages.

Due to the sea tides, this tour may go to Lindisfarne at different times to enable safe crossing and return to the mainland. The village of Bamburgh will also be included in the tour with St. Aiden’s Church and its Ossuary both being sights to visit.
