An estimated 650,000 visitors are attracted to Peregrini Lindisfarne landscape every year to experience its religious, cultural and natural treasures. Despite the numerous interest features of the area, visitors tend to flock to a handful of 'honey-pot' key attractions. This creates a piecemeal experience of the landscape and high visitor pressure on certain locations, while many features of the area remain undiscovered and unexplored.

The special quality of the island and the adjacent mainland is often overwhelmed by these pressures, resulting in the degradation of the built and natural landscape.

Peregrini Lindisfarne works with local partners by improving and widening learning opportunities to promote sustainable landscape management. Through our Gateways to Land and Seascape as well as our Interpretation projects, carefully designed visitor infrastructure will improve the communities and visitor experience, while mitigating the pressures of high visitor numbers.
