Make a day of it

Berwick-Upon-Tweed is a fantastic place to visit.

Whilst your with us, why not explore beautiful Berwick-upon-Tweed?

Gorgeous coastal views and riverside walks, Georgian architecture, and a great selection of independent shops and cafes.

If you’d like explore the town’s history, enjoy a walk along the River Tweed to explore the castle ruins or along the Elizabethan ramparts (The Walls) – the full circuit takes just under an hour.

The Maltings is right in the town centre just off Marygate and close to the Georgian Guildhall (brilliantly captured in a painting by L S Lowry who holidayed in Berwick for many years – you can follow the Lowry Trail around the town to find out more, and take in the local scenes he painted as you go).

It’s a 5 minute walk from The Maltings to the Granary Gallery by the Quayside, and from there you can follow The Walls round to the Gymnasium Gallery adjacent to the historic 18th century Berwick Barracks. Now managed by English Heritage, the Barracks is also home to Berwick Museum & Gallery and the regimental museum of the Kings Own Scottish Borderers. A visit gives you a vivid sense of Berwick’s colourful past, and its strategic importance as a crucial stronghold on the border between England and Scotland over the last 800 years and more.

More information on how to make the most of your time in Berwick is available at Visit Berwick and at Berwick Visitor Centre on Walkergate.
