It’s in England but used to be Scottish. It has stunning natural scenery, interwoven with a beautiful built environment. It’s a heritage destination that’s also a cultural centre.
This is a place full of unexpected sights and un-explored places. Adventuring down alleyways, stumbling upon hidden courtyards, climbing up a sand dune, peering down at medieval remains - there's always a view you haven't seen or a story you haven't heard.
You can get stories served with a Northumberland accent, go dolphin watching and visit a micro-brewery in the same afternoon or find cutting edge media arts exhibited in an 18th century house.
Why conform to expectations? In Berwick-upon-Tweed you can go your own way.
