Getting There

A circular walk from the northernmost town in England, Berwick-upon-Tweed. The walk takes in a short stretch of the beautiful coast before circling the town via the town walls and Elizabethan ramparts, some of the best remaining examples of their type in the country. There is an opportunity for a paddle on the sandy beaches plus chance to explore some of the galleries and museums within the town. The majority of the walk follows paved paths, with just a short section along the grass coastal path. The route is relatively flat with just some short slopes and there are no steps or stiles, just a few simple gates, so it would be possible to complete with a pushchair. The coastal path follows the edge of a golf course so take care and keep your eyes peeled for any stray flying golf balls. Dogs are welcome on the town walls and bins are located along the way so that you can clear up after them. Approximate time 1.5 to 2 hours.

The Berwick Barracks in the north corner of the city feature several museums and are well worth a visit.

Berwick-upon-Tweed is located in Northumberland on the North Sea coast, just a couple of miles south of the Scottish border. The walk starts and finishes from the free Pier and Beach car park which is signed from the town. Make your way (with care) along the narrow road, Pier Road, towards the pier and then, just before the last house on the left (Pier House), swing left on the tarmac lane. Follow the lane all the way to the end where you will find the car park (alongside the cricket field and golf course). Approximate post code TD15 1JD.

a realtively easy circular route that encompasses the vast majority of historical sites in this oft fought over town.
