    Description
    The Farne Islands are situated between two and five miles off the Northumberland Coast. There are 28 islands in total, 15 of which can be seen at high tide, with the largest island being Inner Farne. Historically the Farne Islands are associated with St Aidan and St Cuthbert, both of whom used the islands as a place to mediate in utter solitude. The Northumberland heroine, Grace Darling spent most of her short life on the lighthouses here, first on Brownsman's Island and then on Longstone Island. The 30-minute boat trip, departing from Seahouses brings in excess of 45,000 visitors to the islands throughout the year.
