We went to explore Berwick and stayed for the whole day! Having found the long term car park (FREE!) we were surrounded by the old ramparts of the Elizabethan fort! Although now grassed over, the ramparts made for a very easy walk - but take care with kids otherwise they may end up in the car park if they survive the 30 ft fall! We walked around all of the ramparts and well as then extending the walk to the riverside to see the 3 bridges (walked past them all and then through the park where the old castle ruins are to be found). All navigated with the tourist map of the town....free from any of the tourist information centres or other via other Northumbria attractions .. so dead easy. Get your walking shoes on and enjoy.....

We walked the walls around Berwick upon Tweed one afternoon. We didn’t rush and stopped to read the information boards along the route. It was very interesting and the scenery is beautiful. It’s worth stopping to look all around so that you aren’t always looking at the sea. The views of the town and bridges are well worth spending time on. The grassy areas are well kept and were very pretty. Also, we didn’t see one piece of litter which was a pleasant change. Do be aware of the warning signs where there are sheer drops. They aren’t kidding, but as long as you are aware, there is no need to worry. If I go back to Berwick I will walk the walls again, it is an enchanting way to spend a couple of hours.

Berwicks position on the Anglo Scottish border means that was a place of conflict for years. A walled town makes a lot of sense on this context. And the walls are amazing. Lots to see, useful signboards to point out the relevant history, great views of the town, river and bridges. It's a great way to understand the history of this town.

The walls are actually grass ramparts going round 3 sides of Berwick-upon-Tweed. They are in excellent condition, easily accessible with lots of interesting information. And crucially, not too long so you can get round them in a reasonable time. You get a delightful view over the town and the sea and as Berwick is quite compact you are never far from the centre.

This was part of our visit. We were fortunate to have an excellent and knowledgeable guide- who was also entertainingly amusing and with lots of tales to tell and with a formidable surveyor's knowledge. The walk is fairly lengthy, but doable for the not-so-young. however, in parts it is a little exposed to easterly winds and wrapping up well is adviseable.
