The St Oswald’s Way
Walking Holiday in Northern England
from Lindisfarne (Holy Island) to Hexham.

Walking in Northern England from Lindisfarne, the Holy Island, with its ruined abbey and castle off the Northumberland coast of England to Hexham on Hadrian’s Wall.
Via the Northumberland coast towns of Bamburgh, Seahouses , Dunstanburgh Castle, Craster, Alnmouth and Warkworth. The River Coquet valley, Fetton, Brinkburn Priory, Rothbury, Northumberland National Park, and Kirkwhelpington.

The St Oswald’s Way is 101 miles, 162 kms, long and one of UK’s long distance way-marked walking trails.
The walking holiday begins on the Northumberland coast at the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, famous for its ruined abbey and fine castle, and follows the St Cuthbert’s Way before heading back to the Northumberland coast to Warkworth via Bamburgh Castle. The walking trail then heads inland following the course of the River Coquet for a short distance. The hiking tour passes through the edge of the Northumberland National Park before meeting up with Hadrian’s Wall Path.
This walking holiday is great hiking for visitors to the UK as it offers a taste of England’s history; Roman, ancient, medieval and religious. The hiking route is a great first walking holiday as it is fairly easy walking and offers a wealth of interesting places to visit en-route.
The causeway to Holy Island is tidal and so this holiday is only available when the tides are favourable.
This self guided walking holiday hikes through some of the Northern UK’s and Northumberland’s best walking country. The Oswald’s Way passes through towns and villages connected with 7th century King of Northumbria who helped bring Christianity to this part of Northern England.

The priory that now stands in ruins dates back to the 11th century. The castle on the island dates back to Henry VIII, is now run by the National Trust and well worth a visit. This island is a special place with so much to see it is a great place to extend your stay.
