The Farne Islands is one of the best spots to see a wide range of sea birds in the British Isles. It is the biggest Grey Seal sanctuary in England and also one can find Puffins more plentiful here in season than almost anywhere else in the UK. Regular boat trips depart daily from the charming fishing village of Seahouses. A truly wonderful experience.
