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

There are very few towns and cities in the UK with walls as impressive as these. The stonework is in excellent condition and the embankments are enormous - you get a real sense of how they were used to defend the city, where the guns might have been placed and the roll of the giant bastions every few hundred yards....

A pleasant walk around the Elizabethan walls that still surround the town that lies just before the border with Scotland. There are views of the town, the Tweed estuary and the coastline. The walk takes about an hour to complete.

Berwick is a very pleasant location for a day trip and the Elizabethan walls are a principle pleasure of visit here. Please be aware, however, that there are sections of the walls that present hazards- particularly for those with children or dogs. Sheer drops of twenty feet or more ( with no barriers to indicate the danger) are a feature... More

We had a very nice autumn walk around the entire town. These were built as ramparts in the day, now you can walk around them and get the history of them. You also have access to the Tweed from the Walls, and although we didn't go down to the shores looked like an additional great walking spot.
