Walked the walls with my grandsons, easy walk, lots of information boards,a great playground for children below the walls, convenient steps give access to the park. Best of all is the fantastic views of the town and coast line.

The ramparts make for an enjoyable walk around Berwick. The information boards are informative and there are some great views from the ramparts. The paths are very well maintained.
