Welcome to Berwick-upon-Tweed!
Set on the beautiful and unspoiled Northumberland coast at the mouth of the River Tweed, Berwick is England’s most northerly town. Famous for its Elizabethan Walls, three iconic bridges and picturesque Georgian buildings, Berwick is packed with tradition and quirky charm. The town is nestled on the Tweed estuary with golden beaches and a rich variety of birds and wildlife. It’s the perfect place for an unforgettable visit!
The definitive border town
The focus of many centuries of warfare between England and Scotland, Berwick has perfectly preserved Elizabethan fortifications which are the most complete bastioned town defences in Northern Europe. With bastions, batteries, buttresses and Britain’s first purpose built barracks, the dramatic history of Berwick comes alive as you walk these imposing walls.
There’s lots to see and do
Whether it's exploring our museums and galleries and walking the Walls to soak up the Town's incredible history, or a family visit to the seaside to build sandcastles, walk Spittal promenade and play in the splash park - there really is something for everyone. We're also surrounded by spectacular coastline and countryside, we're a stone's throw from the Scottish Borders, the Chevioy Hills, the incredible story of Lindisfarne and Holy Island and the amazing wildlife on the Farne Islands.
We’re closer than you think!
Close to the A1, equidistant between Edinburgh and Newcastle, around an hour from both destnations by either car or train on the East Coast mainline.
