  • Times here are given in good faith but neither Northumberland County Council nor this website accept responsibility for any inaccuracies.
  • Calculations are based on predictions for Leith supplied by Proudman Oceanographic Laboratory, Copyright reserved.
  • These indicative times are provided for visitors planning to use the Lindisfarne Causeway ROAD to access (or return from) Holy island.
  • The times should be treated with caution, as local weather conditions (such as high wind) can change them. Always allow 30 minutes extra time to compensate for these variables.
  • THESE TIMES DO NOT APPLY TO the marked WALKING ROUTE OVER THE SANDS/MUD - called 'The Pilgrims Way'. If you intend to use this route, please do so during daylight hours with someone who has local knowledge. NEVER CROSS DURING A RISING TIDE and plan to have completed this walk BEFORE the mid-point of the safe-to-cross time period indicated.
