Farne Islands Review
Regular boat trips from the sweet little village of Seahouses provide access to the bleak, wind-tossed Farne Islands with their impressive colonies of seabirds, including puffins, kittiwakes, terns, shags, and guillemots, and barking groups of gray seals. Inner Farne, where St. Cuthbert, the great abbot of Lindisfarne, died in AD 687, has a tiny chapel. Cruises to Inner Farne (April, August, September, and October, daily on the hour from 10 to 3; May to July from noon to 3) and the rocky Staple Island (May to July, daily at 10, 11, and noon) each cost £13, take 2½ hours and include landfall in good weather. Look out for the ruined lighthouse beacons as you pass Brownsman Island. All boat services leave from Seahouses harbor—look for the tiny booth selling tickets or the outlet in the main village parking lot. Six-hour trips (late April to July, daily at 9:30; £30) allow for a morning stroll on Inner Farne and an afternoon on Staple Island. Pack a lunch. The islands are owned by the National Trust.
