A guided walk in the Footsteps of the early Saints

The Pilgrims' Way to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne
We walk in the footsteps of the Saints and early Christians along the ancient Pilgrims' Way, the traditional route to Lindisfarne, which has been in use for at least 1500 years. You can choose to walk barefoot and feel the squidgy mud between your toes, or wellies or sandals if you prefer. We do have to splash through some water though, so wellies work well on this Footsteps walk. As we cross the wide open space between the mainland and the Island, listen out for the singing seals, you’ll remember that mournful, magical sound for a long time. Once on the Island, we'll be exploring and discovering some of its wilder corners before walking back over to the mainland along the tarmac causeway. Alternatively, we can catch a bus back to the mainland. Please bring money for tea and cake and your bus fare, which is at present £1.90 for a single adult fare. This is an exciting and adventurous walk for all the family and the dog too.
The walk is a total distance of 6 miles (10 Km) if you catch the bus back, if you choose to walk back, its 8 miles (12 Km).

We can only cross when the tide is out, so start times will vary, but we normally walk in the morning, between 0900 and 1200.
The path is clearly defined and it is important that we follow it closely. You must follow your guide at all times.
You can walk back to the mainland, but most people like to catch the bus, single fare £1.90.
Traditionally, the walk is done barefoot, which is great once the water has warmed up, but chilly otherwise. Wellies are recommended as the water at a couple points is ankle deep, if you don't mind getting your feet wet, then boots/shoes/trainers are fine. Sandals are a good option also.
