Location has always been the attraction for the occupiers of Lindisfarne Castle on Holy Island. From the original Tudor builders looking for a strong position to protect the island harbour to the wealthy Edwardian bachelor seeking a quiet retreat from London, the situation of the Castle has intrigued and inspired for centuries. Lutyens' renovation hides and emphasises the old fort, while overlooking Gertrude Jekyll's garden and the Lime Kilns, magnificent evidence of Lindisfarne's industrial past.

Lindisfarne is a tidal island accessed via a 3 mile causeway at low tide. Therefore, the castle opening times vary depending on the tides. On open days the castle will open for 5 hours which will always include 12:00 15:00. It will open either 10:00 15:00 or 12:00 17:00. The National Trust flag will fly only when the castle is open.
