Silversea Expedition Cruises To Isle of Lundy

Isle of Lundy

Lundy has a long and colourful history due to its strategic location in the Bristol Channel between Devon and Wales. Residents and landlords included neolithic groups, celts, the Knights Templar, kings and English families. Marisco Castle was built by the English crown in the 13th century and rebuilt during the English civil war. At times, the island was a base for French, Spanish, Basque and English pirates, and corsairs from the Barbary Coast. The latter exported captured English as slaves to Algiers. View more

The island is only about five kilometres (three miles) long but has three lighthouses. The old light proved too tall to be seen in low fog and required cannons to be regularly fired as ‘fog alerts’. The newer shorter lighthouses at either end of the island still function. Walking the island is easy and reveals historic features and the unique native Lundy Cabbage. The Lundy Pony has been on the island long enough to evolve into its own breed. Soay Sheep were introduced from the St Kilda isles and Sika Deer from East Asia. Twenty per cent of the island’s rabbits are black due to a melanistic strain in their genetics. Lundy is Norse for ‘puffin island’ and there are small numbers of these birds in summer, along with other seabirds. You may spot Grey Seals hauled out onshore in the north of the island or spy their heads in the sea. The value of the island’s clean marine environment was recognised when the United Kingdom’s first no-take zone for marine nature conservation was designated at Lundy.
