Berwick-upon-Tweed Hotels

Mini guide to Berwick-upon-Tweed

     

On the border with Scotland, Berwick-upon-Tweed is England's northernmost town. It oozes historical interest, with its battlements, medieval walls, 18th century architecture, a 17th century bridge and its connections with Scot heroes Robert The Bruce and William Wallace.

There is a guided walk around Berwick-upon-Tweed and this reveals a splendour of historical nuggets. A good place to start is at The Old Bridge, dating from 1634 and being the gateway to the town. Taking in Castlegate, Cumberland Bastion and The Barracks it is then well worth a break to absorb the magnificent views of the Northumberland coast, Lindisfarne and Bamburgh. Further you'll discover the Russian gun is a reminder of the Crimean War and another good stopping place is the newly restored Quayside on the river.

At Hide Hill you will find restaurants, bars and coffee shops providing a variety of welcome refreshments and in the town there are craft and souvenir shops along with antique shops and galleries. Visitors are well served by the hotel accommodation and there are a variety of inns and pubs.

Ford and Etal estates are set in the shadow of the Cheviot Hills amid some of the most beautiful scenery in North Northumberland, and it is well worth taking a trip out to Lindisfarne to explore Holy Island. Northumberland's scenery was designed for photographers so taking a drive will be well rewarded and you could visit Durham with its magnificent cathedral.

Northumbria is served by excellent trunk roads. The A1/A1(M) provide fast easy access from the south and north of the country. From the west, the A69 or A66 offer connections from the M6. There are two international airports, at Newcastle and Teeside and Newcastle is a ferry port to Europe. There are direct trains from London every two hours, and more frequent connections to Newcastle.
