Farne Islands 2016 Opening Times

Although the Farne islands are closed to visitors over the winter season, there is still plenty of work to keep the rangers busy. Ed Tooth, one of the island rangers, gives us a quick update.
"We are on the mainland and are already busy preparing for a new season. The boats are away for servicing, the report is being edited and we have finally got some warmth into our bones!
We also have some important news if you are planning on visiting us next year; the opening times.
Inner Farne will be open from the 1st of April until the 30th October from 10.30-18.00. Between and including May 1st and July 31st Inner Farne will be open from 13.15-17.45.

Staple Island will be open from 1st of May to 31st of July. The island will be open between 10.00 and 13.30.

This is, as always subject to the weather, and all we can say is that we hope that the summer of 2016 is better than that of 2015.

More information can be found on the national trust website regarding your visit.

We look forward to seeing you all on the islands in 2016!"
