Holy Island Lindisfarne to Hexham

Walking holiday on St Oswald's Way
Online Booking Available!                        
Walking in Northern England from Lindisfarne, the Holy Island, with its ruined abbey and castle off the Northumberland coast of England to Hexham on Hadrian's Wall.
Via the Northumberland coast towns of Bamburgh, Seahouses , Dunstanburgh Castle, Craster, Alnmouth and Warkworth. The River Coquet valley, Fetton, Brinkburn Priory, Rothbury, Northumberland National Park, and Kirkwhelpington.
The St Oswald's Way is
101 miles, 162 kms, long
and one of UK's long
distance way-marked
walking trails. The walking
holiday begins on the
Northumberland coast at
the Holy Island of
Lindisfarne, famous for its
ruined abbey and fine
castle, and follows the
St Cuthbert's Way
before heading back to the
Northumberland coast to
Warkworth via Bamburgh
Castle. The walking trail
then heads inland
following the course of the
River Coquet for a short
distance. The hiking tour
passes through the edge of
the Northumberland
National Park before
meeting up with
Hadrian's Wall Path.
This walking holiday is great hiking for visitors to the UK as it offers a taste of England's history; Roman, ancient, medieval and religious. The hiking route is a great first walking holiday as it is fairly easy walking and offers a wealth of interesting places to visit en-route.
The causeway to Holy Island is tidal and so this holiday is only available when the tides are favourable.
