More to see

Lindisfarne Priory’s museum and shop have recently undergone an exciting refurbishment!

New objects have been put into the museum, some of which were excavated very recently. A new monument for St Cuthbert now marks his original burial place and a poem and artwork has been specially commissioned for the Priory. Wander round, take your time, and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Find out more about things to see and do at the priory below.
