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.
