A green surrounded by a range of interesting buildings of various ages and styles with the cathedral taking up one side and the castle opposite. a unique place.

Wonderful exhibition not to be missed. A great place to spend time. Terrific views of the Cathedral and the buildings surrounding the green. Lovely cafe in one of the old buildings. Well worth a visit

Historic, interesting and FREE! We visited on a walking tour to take in the Prebends bridge, castle, cathedral and town. The views of the castle and cathedral are amazing from the green, and to the west end you will see a hand water pump and an octagonal building. Look up at the roof, you will see the most amazing Gargoyles.... More
The Palace Green is between the Cathedral and Castle and there is a local bus service to it for those who can't walk far. It is also just next to the Lindisfarne Gospels exhibition and there's an excellent cafe at its side.
