Lindisfarne Priory on Holy Island was the site of one of the most important
early centres of Christianity in Anglo-Saxon England. From the end of the 8th
century, the isolated island with its wealthy monastery proved easy prey for
Viking raiders and the monks of the priory were driven out. Lindisfarne Priory
is managed by English Heritage, admission charges apply. Holy Island is only
reached at low tide across a causeway (tide tables details from Berwick Tourist
Information Centre - 01289 330733).
