The Historic market town of Berwick Upon Tweed stands as a testament to both English and Scottish history. It holds a unique position on the north east coast of the United Kingdom, situated only a short distance of two and a half miles from the current border.
With Elizabethan fortified ramparts, maintained by English Heritage, which have defended the economically important costal settlement from the perils of the invading Scots army since 1717, Berwick boasts an enviable dual cultural heritage.
Having changed hands no fewer than 13 times in its history, Berwick is now a thriving and vibrant community. Linked by the A1 and the East Coast Mainline Railway to both Alnwick, Morpeth and Newcastle to the south, and Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Inverness to the north.
The world famous river Tweed, once a natural border, is now a focus for leisure pursuits such as trout fishing, bird watching, walking, clay pigeon shooting, quad biking and golf.
Berwickshire and Northumberland boast many world heritage sites including castles, beaches, nature reserves, historic houses, towns and villages. Discover the birthplace of Christianity on the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, or the far reaches of the Roman Empire at Hadrian's Wall.
