Holy Island offers a magical mix of nature, history, spirituality and much more. Since the 7th century it has attracted pilgrims due largely to the fame of two local saints.
The priory ruins and the site museum are under the auspices of English Heritage. The beautifully illuminated Lindisfarne Gospels were subsequently crafted by the monks in honour of St Cuthbert.
