Days Out Attractions & Buildings


This historic border market town has changed hands between the Scottish and the English 14 times and is soaked in the bloody history of these fierce exchanges. Visit the Regimental Museum, Tweed Main Guard and Ramparts or Berwick Castle to immerse yourself fully in the battles of the past. And if all that history proves a little too violent, Berwick and the surrounding area has stunning beaches and countryside in spades. Particularly popular with campers, there are loads of sites to choose from. Also well worth the trip up to this border town is The Maltings: an arts centre and theatre in the heart of Berwick staging contemporary pieces as well as more traditional shows. The Berwick Gymnasium Gallery meanwhile stages some great exhibitions.
