This was Borders Journeys’ first tour to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. Joining our tour were Barbara from Canada and two locals, John & Philip. Leaving a wet and miserable Melrose, we travelled via Kelso, Coldstream, Ford & Etal and Flodden Field. We arrived to a dry Holy Island of Lindisfarne. After some refreshments we walked up to Lindisfarne Castle where we had a great tour then admired the amazing view along the Northumbrian coast towards Bamburgh Castle.
Following lunch we toured Lindisfarne Centre, Lindisfarne Priory, St. Mary’s Parish Church and Gospels Garden. No trip would be complete without sampling then purchasing Lindisfarne Mead. On our way back to the minibus we ‘stocked-up’ on some delicious Pilgrims fudge for the journey home.
Leaving the island there were several suggested options what to do next! Barbara and Philip had never visited Paxton House, therefore we headed there. After a tour of the house and gardens we headed back to Melrose via Kelso.
Everyone enjoyed their tour to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne; Borders Journeys is looking forward to taking many more of our visitors there.
