Berwick-upon-Tweed is the most Northerly town in England’s most Northerly County of Northumberland. With some of the most spectacular coastal views and situated on the banks of the River Tweed – Berwick is a dramatic walled town in a beautiful location. As a result, Berwick has always attracted artistic folk…

From home grown artists including Thomas Sword-Good and Fred Stott, to visitors including Turner and L.S. Lowry – Berwick’s landscape and architecture has been a fascination for many.

Lowry in particular had a great love of the town, visiting Berwick on holiday from the 1930’s until the year before his death in 1976.

The Lion House


Today, Lowry continues to inspire local Northumbrian artists from digital art created for the range of 'It's Not Lowry' products, to ceramics painted in his style and even the odd song dedicated to his name... Lowry continues to inhabit this town.



The Lowry Trail allows you to follow in the great man's footsteps and experience the views that Lowry returned to, year after year. Don't miss the L.S. Lowry in Berwick & Northumberland exhibition in 2014!
