Lindisfarne Priory & Museum

The Priory..

  • Lindisfarne Priory was one of the most important centres of early Christianity in Anglo-Saxon England. It is still a place of pilgrimage today, the dramatic approach across the causeway adding to its fascination.
  • Founded by St Aidan in AD635, the site owes its fame to St Cuthbert, the greatest of Northumbrian holy men, who lived and died there.
  • Wander around the atmospheric ruins, and visit the refurbished museum. There you’ll discover the fascinating story of the monks who lived on Holy Island until the monastery was suppressed in 1537.
