This applies to all visitors including National Trust members. Throughout the Seal Tours (which occurs on Staple Island), Inner Farne will remain open with normal opening times and prices applying (National Trust members free).
To ensure the safety of all visitors on an active Grey Seal colony (and to avoid any undue disturbance to the Grey Seals), all visitors will be escorted and given a full briefing on landing. Anyone visiting should be aware of the physical nature of the seal tours as you’ll be walking over unstable terrain and negotiating uneven ground. Sturdy footwear is therefore recommended along with warm clothing.
Please note the first opening date is subject to the birth(s) of Grey Seal pups on Staple Island. The location of the pup(s) will also be taken into consideration with regards to granting safe access to the colony. For information on opening day, please keep an eye on the Farne Island blog or follow us on twitter @NTSteely. See you soon!
