Berwick-upon-Tweed Certificated Locations

The northernmost town in England, Berwick-upon-Tweed has a turbulent history. It is only 2.5 miles from the Scottish borders and the Kingdoms of England and Scotland battled over its ownership for 400 years, resulting in it changing hands 14 times.


However, things are a lot more peaceful these days and the now-English town is a cultural gem for tourists. You can wander around the medieval town walls, Elizabethan ramparts and the ruins of Berwick Castle by the river.


There are numerous attractions within the pretty town centre too, including shops, the most northerly pub in England, a creative pottery centre and Berwick Town Hall, which offers tours.


For relaxation in Berwick, try one of the four sandy beaches or a scenic riverside walk, taking in the Royal Border Bridge constructed by Robert Louis Stevenson.


Berwick also hosts numerous film, book and food festivals year-round, all of which are worth a visit.
