Lindisfarne Castle

Lindisfarne Castle is a museum on Holy Island near Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberland. The Castle is a Grade 1 listed building which was built in 1550 as a fort to protect the Island's harbor. After being decommissioned in 1893, the building was renovated in 1903-6 by Edwin Lutyens for his friend Edward Hudson for use as a holiday home. The nearby garden was designed by Gertrude Jekyll, Lutyens' long-time collaborator.

    So delighted to have made it to Holy Island. Parked at the main car park and managed to walk to The Priory. I thought I would be unable to visit the castle due to being disabled but we saw due to signage we could take the car nearer to the castle as I was a blue badge holder. We parked with other cars beyond the gate but we were greeted with continued hostility and pointed stares from a man getting into his car who turned out to be a National Trust worker. My son in law went over and enquired if there was a problem as he didn’t approach us just continued to be rude and hostile. He informed us the parking area was for NT staff only, but this was not indicated by signage. His wife seemed embarrassed naturally by his behaviour and told us this happened a lot and to just leave it. We moved the car immediately . I was so embarrassed and upset we didn’t bother going any further. It was a very sad end to a pilgrimage I never thought I would manage. Get your signage sorted and maybe your staff!!!
