Holy Island can only be reached by vehicle or on foot via a 3ml causeway, which is closed from 2 hours before high tide until 3 hours after. Tide tables are printed in local newspapers, on Northumberland CC website and displayed at the causeway. To avoid disappointment check safe crossing times before making a long/special journey. No large bags, pushchairs or rucksacks inside castle, please. Emergency WC only; otherwise nearest WC in village 1ml from castle
