Lindisfarne Centre is well worth a visit while you are on Holy Island as it gives you a great chance to discover the history of the island. There is a 15 minute video at the start that will give you a good introduction to the island and the exhibits that you will see.
Learn about the ancient Lindisfarne gospels that were created in about 698. You can also see digital copies of them as the originals are too delicate and held at the British Library.
The Viking exhibit will take you through the events of the first attack hundreds of years ago and give you a chance to play some of the games that would have been played by Viking families from that time.
The Exhibition of Island life will let you explore the varied wildlife, rare plants and the history of people whose families have lived on the island for generations!
Find out about fishing, farming and mining, plus the seals and other sea life in the surrounding sea. Make sure you check the tide times before you visit.
