A self guided Berwick walk which has been launched by the Royal Geographical Society as part of the ‘Discovering Britain’ series.

A circular walk exploring one of the best-preserved fortified towns in Europe.

Did you know that the town of Berwick-upon-Tweed has changed hands between England and Scotland at least 13 times?

Things are peaceful today but Berwick has a dramatic history caught on the frontline of battles, rebellions, wars and skirmishes.

On this unforgettable walk enjoy magnificent views from Berwick’s castle, discover how locals have lived alongside the military for centuries and look for evidence of English and Scottish identity.

Follow the walk by clicking on the map pins or downloading the guides on the website.

The walks are free, fun, easy to do and come complete with a map, and a choice of an audio or written commentary of the places of interest along the walks. Everything that is needed to enjoy the Berwick walk can be downloaded from the Discovering Britain website.
