Prince Charles set to meet conservationists and fishermen

Prince Charles' Northumberland debut continues tomorrow, taking in the spiritual sights of Lindisfarne, as well as the secular delights of a local pub in Low Newton.

Holy Island

The Prince will begin his first visit to the Holy Island with a tour of Lindisfarne Castle (a property of the National Trust, of which he is President), meeting staff and volunteers. He will go on to the recently renovated Lookout Tower, then meet residents and visitors at Holy Island parish Church, St Mary's, and Lindisfarne Priory.


At the Grace Darling Museum in Bamburgh, Prince Charles will be greeted by staff and volunteers. As President of The Marine Conservation Society, he will then meet conservationists undertaking a litter survey on Bamburgh beach.


Prince Charles will start his visit at the harbour, meeting Seahouse's lifeboat crew as well as staff at harbour businesses, local artists and young volunteers. Swallowfish smokery and shop is his next destination, which uses traditional smoking methods.

Low Newton

Regulars at The Ship Inn will welcome the Prince to Low Newton. Landlady Christine Forsythe will also show him round the successful microbrewery she has developed.


The Prince will be shown round Alnwick Castle Gardens by the Duchess of Northumberland, the driving force behind the gardens restoration project that he patronises. He will then open a Jamie's Ministry of Food centre at Alnwick Castle, which will encourage local people to use local produce. Finally, Prince Charles will meet young people who have been helped both by his own Prince's Trust programmes and the Cheryl Cole Foundation.
