Berwick is a Georgian town, but a walk around the city walls enables you to visualise more of its history. Some of the houses which are situated close to the walls are magnificent and in a truly unique position. There are many information birds on the elk which explain their history.

Definitely worth going to for anyone visiting Berwick-Upon-Tweed. The walls have some well detailed information points around the very nicely kept trail. The view out towards Tweedmouth, Berwick, the river, the North Sea and as far down the coast as Lindisfarne are outstanding. On a side note, definitely worth continuing the walk down to the lighthouse at the end of... More

We only went to do some pre Christmas shopping at Morrisons but having done that we spent the best part of three hours walking the old town walls. I hadn't expected too much but was very pleasantly surprised. It was very interesting and thoroughly enjoyable and the, people we met on the walk, mainly dog walkers- we had our dog,... More

This is well worth doing - even in part - as it tells you a lot about the history of the town and is very picturesque and interesting. These walls are the best of their kind in England and unique in all respects. The view is amazing and there are helpful noticeboards all along the route. In addition to telling... More

I really like the walks that go near the car park and the beach. The walks lead to near the castle and railway bridge.

beautifully maintained walls around the town with outstanding sea views. Only takes half hour to stroll round and the visitor sees Berwick at its best

There are a number of walks that incorporate these walls, and it is possible to walk right around the walled part of the town. The surfaces and paths are in excellent condition and the signage and historical information is good. Some parts of the walks are on the walls and other parts are on high embankments, where good views of... More
