Berwick-upon-Tweed

Berwick's iconic Royal Border Bridge is illuminated each evening from dusk, with a changing programme of lights.

To mark occasions, raise awareness of causes and to commemorate special dates; the illuminations are set to a significant colour. This creates a special spectacle and a unique opportunity for photography.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to technical issues, the over-water lights are currently off. Engineers are working on fixing them and updates will be made to this page when they are back on. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
