Thoroughly enjoyed my walk around the walls of Berwick, dont think that they make as much of visiting the walls locally as they should. There arent many towns or cities in England that can compare.

The walls are great, the views are fantastic especially on a sunny day but even in winter just wrap up and go. Walking down Bankhill is better than walking up so if you are disabled it is better to just walk the flat parts.

Lovely views. Nice park areas and views over the town, river and sea. Very well looked after, takes about an hour. Would recommend . There are some steep drops, with warnings, best to keep a close eye on little ones !

Walked the full length of the walls on a lovely hot day in Berwick. If you tie this in to following the Lowry Trail it only adds to the enjoyment. The walk is very informative with well placed information boards identifying interesting facts about the...More

Hi, The walls and ramparts are one and the same but the castle is not. The castle is next to the train station and is basically ruins which you can only partially access. You can walk down to the river and up to the castle... More
