Holy Island and Lindisfarne for me is one of the 'magic' places in the world
Ray is a crafty sod, but quite right because the police cannot get there either.
Sandra is also right - it is a tourist trap. I suggest you go over (when the tide is right) late afternoon, i.e. when the grockles have gone and have a sundowner at the pub and go back to the CP on the landside of the causeway for the night.
My first visit to Holy Island was waiting for the tide to drop, sitting in a minivan on the causeway in a lightning storm - we were the only piece of metal. Thank goodness I knew about 'Faraday's Cage'
Before you go read up about St. Bede, St. Cuthbert, Durham and the Christian influence on the NE, long before the South. The C of E Monastery at Alnmouth is also worth a visit when open, particularly the chapel in the old library, with its pedestal alter backed by a picture window looking onto the North Sea.
Enjoy your visit.
