As we were walking back to the town centre having walked round the headland & Castle we stumbled across the tiny garden which has minimal interest depending on your point of view. Don't make a special effort to go there

Although these are only small gardens they are worth a visit if you are on the island. Plenty of birds to enjoy watching. The garden still had summer flowers when we visited in November that were still in full flower amazing!

Nice garden but not that peaceful as there were lots of tourists as I was. Very nicely maintained next to the priory.

A lovely place to sit and admire the views of the castle, priory and harbour. It’s very peaceful and what a delight to hear birds and the waves.

This garden is dominated by a large sculpture of St. Aidan & also has very good views of Lindisfarne Priory. Nearby is St. Mary's church, thought to be the oldest building on Lindisfarne.

So much history, just sit back and imagine what this church and grounds has witnessed in its lifetime.

A small but beautiful garden obviously loved and well cared for. A peaceful haven with seating. Lovely tulips!

We went into the Lindisfarne Centre run by the local people. It has a very informative hands on section with lots to do and touch for children while adults can sit down and watch videos of how the illuminations were done and also a page...More

I always like going in here, the birds are friendly, and at the right time of year the flowers are lovely. Peaceful & quiet, somewhere to sit & think if the weather is agreeable!!

Tucked behind a deep wall sits a little oasis of calm and beauty. Neither large, nor filled with exotic offerings but still delightfully planted with cottage garden plants.
