Overview

‘I want to amuse myself with the place’ declared Edward Hudson about Lindisfarne Castle in 1902. And so he did. With the help of Arts and Crafts architect Edwin Lutyens and gardener Gertrude Jekyll, the 16th-century Castle was transformed into a welcoming holiday home and romantic retreat that hosted parties, concerts and even a Royal visit.

In this guidebook, discover the visitors who loved – and hated – Lindisfarne and the family who looked after them. You will also uncover the area’s earlier past, from castle sieges to its industrial heritage.

Additional features include a guide to wildlife you might spot at the Castle and surrounding island, and a fold-out panorama with information on the key sites that can be seen from the Upper Battery.
