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:
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
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.
These times are given in good faith but Northumberland County
Council can accept no responsibility for decisions taken on the
basis of any inaccuracies.
