Berwick-upon-Tweed has always been one of Northumberland’s most popular visitor destinations; in fact Nikolaus Pevsner called it one of the most exciting towns in England.
Where else, within just an hour, can you walk atop dramatic Elizabethan fortifications, see the county’s first purpose-built infantry barracks, view an iconic 28 arch railway viaduct designed by Robert Stephenson, a conglomeration of enchanting Georgian houses and cobbled lanes and archways? And it’s all within a stunning setting alongside one of Britain’s finest salmon rivers, and with views up the Tweed valley and out across the estuary as far as Holy Island and beyond.
If you’d like to go and experience Berwick for yourself, why not enter Visit Northumberland’s Berwick competition? Win a short break at The Walls Bed & Breakfast, an elegant 5 star silver period townhouse perched on the Edwardian Walls in the heart of Berwick’s historic old town.
