This amazing premium tour is one of the best.

Further along and holding the coast line we come to the Holy Island causeway, weve already planned the timing so the tide is out and we cross over to Holy Island, the home of Christianity in England ,where we take a short break for refreshments and you will be able to sample the famous Lindisfarne mead in one of the local shops..

The countryside around this area is some of the most spectacular in all of England.
