Berwick-upon-Tweed

Located at the most northerly tip of Northumberland, just three miles from the Scottish Border, the peaceful town of today is a far cry from its turbulent past; captured or sacked 13 times before finally falling into English hands in 1482.


Admire the views from the Elizabethan Walls at Berwick

A view across Berwick-upon-Tweed Estuary

A view across Berwick-upon-Tweed Estuary

Built to keep out invading Scots, walk the complete circuit of the walls to take in spectacular sights across the River Tweed estuary and Berwick’s three bridges. The iconic Royal Border Bridge was built by Robert Stevenson and considered one of the finest bridges in the world.

Take a brisk morning stroll along Bamburgh Beach

With the brooding ramparts of the iconic Bamburgh Castle to one side and the world-famous Farne Islands out to sea on the other, the vast swathe of dune-fringed sands of Bamburgh beach is a dramatic location to blow away the cobwebs.

Discover Northumbrian life and traditions at Ford & Etal Estate

Step back in time with the Heatherslaw Light Railway as you travel by steam between the chocolate-box villages of Ford and Etal near the Scottish Borders. Come face to face with equine giants made for working at Hay Farm Heavy Horse Centre, and explore the last operational watermill at Heatherslaw Cornmill.
