Berwick-upon-Tweed has outstanding architecture - over 260 listed buildings and 3 magnificent bridges.
It has England's only intact Elizabethan Walls that are one of the best preserved in Europe and are similar to those in Lucca in Italy. There are also superb views to Holy Island.
Berwick was also L. S. Lowry's favourite holiday resort and there is a “Lowry Trail”.
There are also River Boat Trips from May to September and a wonderful Dickensian Christmas Market.
Berwick-upon-Tweed has always been famous as a port and a market town where years ago farmers brought their wool and grain to be bought and shipped out. One prominent feature of Berwick is its many granaries. A symbol of how important farming has been to this community for years and years.
Berwick is also the most northern town in England and has the most beautiful unspoilt landscape all around it. It is soaked in intriguing history having changed hands between England and Scotland 13 times. In fact, if you have seen the famous film 'Braveheart' you will be interested to know that William Wallace's left arm was hung on the old bridge 100 yards from us, in 1305 by Edward I as a warning to the Scots.
It is the only town in Britain to have a purpose built garrison…a home built solely for the soldiers whose job it was to keep the Scots at bay.
