United Kingdom Off The Beaten Path: 420 reviews and 440 photos

These islands are about 15 miles off the coast of Bamburgh about and about 10 miles south of Lindisfarne. You can take a boat trip out of Seahouses and see lots of puffins and seals plus lots of other seabirds. Puffins are my favourite little birds they seem so friendly and certainly cheerful funny little creatures. On Inner Farne there is the 14th century St Cuthberts chapel. The boats from Seahouses can land on Staple and Innner Farne. Take a sea sickness pill if you are a seasickness sufferer as the sea can be choppy.
