Just realised that Ineviewed the Priory instead of the castle, so if you are reading reviews of places on Holy Island, need to swap over what I said in error about he Priory and apply it to the Castle!!!

To charge full price of £8.10 a skull for this shell of a building is a disgrace. We walked round this castle in 8 minutes and only after reading the tripadvisor reviews did I realise the blankets over wooden pallets was "art". When we paid...More

We visited during the renovations of the castle, which meant that none of the furnishings were present. The staff were really lovely. All of them were full of knowledge of the history of the building, the island, and the renovations. The art exhibit in place...More

I had visited the castle in May and decided to return to see the art exhibition. Was very disappointed. Thought a frame had been left in one of the rooms due to renovations but realised as I walked through each room that it was 'art'....More

We had read of works on the Castle before visiting so were not surprised to see scaffolding and workers. It’s a walk to get to the entrance from the Island car park but there’s a taxi service. The views are amazing, even in the sea...More

Lindisfarne castle is a little underwhelming due to the renervations being undertaken - certainly not worth paying to go in at the present time. The advertised art exhibition is nothing of the sort - many people thought that it was the builders dust sheets hanging...More

Apparently, the castle has just completed restoration of water damage, and is not yet furnished. So we had a somewhat modern art installation! Happily, we are National Trust members, so it cost us nothing. However my daughter and son-in-law are not members and with hind...More

Disappointed is putting it mildly. On holiday from Northern Ireland we visited Lindisfsrne Castle on 5 June. Car parking is quite a distance away. I believe there's a shuttle bus but we decided not to avail. We were so looking forward to visiting this magical...More
