Tips from a local
Did you know Beadnell has the only West-facing harbour on the East Coast?
This rare spot on the Northumberland Coastline means you can enjoy the sunset from the harbour, looking back over the land. What a stunning way to end an evening stroll along Beadnell Bay sands.
Tips from a local
Visit Holy Island, just a short drive up the A1.
The Lindisfarne Brewery and gift shop is lovely where you’ll find tasty goodies to bring home with you for friends and family – and for yourself!
Please be extra careful and check the tide times for the causeway, and don’t underestimate how fast the tide comes in! It’s a regular occurrence for people to be stranded and have to be rescued by the Coastguard because they ignored the tide timetable and thought they could get through when the tide was coming in – cars flooded with seawater are completely written off!
