Bamburgh and Lindisfarne Day Tour
Spend your day on a historic tour of Bamburgh and Lindisfarne, centres of the English Kingdom of Northumbria. Since pre-history Bamburgh and Lindisfarne have had human settlements. Bamburgh was a fortress of the Kingdom and in the middle ages, the Castle developed as an important location against Scottish attack – eventually developing into the impressive fortification you see today. Lindisfarne is famous for both the Lindisfarne Gospels and being one of the first locations in the United Kingdom to be attacked by the Vikings. It is called the cradle of English Christianity due to the importance of the monastery in the dark ages. The Village of Bamburgh will also be included in the tour with the remains of the monastery and St. Aiden’s Church both being sights to visit.
