Holy Island crossing timetable
also known as: Lindisfarne, Tide times.
Welcome to Northumberland County Council's Holy Island Tide Tables, which provide the official safe crossing times to the beautiful island also known as Lindisfarne.
IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTES:
These times are given in good faith but Northumberland County
Council can accept no responsibility for decisions taken on the
basis of any inaccuracies.
The times provided are for those people who wish to use the
Lindisfarne Causeway ROAD to access (or return
from) Holy island. The times should be treated with caution, as
local weather conditions (such as high wind) can change them.
Always allow 30 minutes extra time to compensate for these
There is also a marked WALKING ROUTE OVER THE
SANDS/MUD, however THESE TIMES DO NOT APPLY TO
IT. If you intend to use this route, please do it during
daylight hours with someone who has local knowledge and
NEVER CROSS DURING A RISING TIDE. You should
therefore aim to have completed this walk BEFORE
the mid-point of the safe-to-cross time period.
