the wall surrounds the modern town. when the scots and english fought over it long ago, the town was outside the walls. it was more important to defend the castle. yeh, right. the castle changed hands 14 times; the town didn't move. I live here....More

Went here last weekend and have to say the whole place is a death trap! Whilst it's a beautiful walk and the views and history are amazing we nearly lost our 2 small dogs over 30ft sheers drops over the walls. I'm flabbergasted that they...More

A very nice walk around the walls with information boards. Beware there are some very steep banks so if you have children or dogs pay special attention. All is well kept and tidy a nice afternoon stroll.

This is one area where notices to stay on the path is quite understated as a risk. The rounded grass tops to walls are deceptive. But a relatively short walk is rewarded by interesting history and different views /lovely scenery. Keep dogs and children close.

An easy and interesting walk around Berwick's Elizabethan Walls. I had a short diversion to the lighthouse and was rewarded with one of the JS Lowry's information boards and a great view across the mouth of the Tweed. The Walls are well marked and there's...More

This way you see the most attractive part of town. The walls are well kept up and there are some lovely views.

Our recent visit to Berwick we had a chance to walk most of the town's wall and was really impressed with the views and condition of the structure

Wonderful walk around the walls. A must do if visiting Berwick-upon-Tweed. Doesn’t take long and allows some great views and a great learning experience.

Despite Hurricane Ali building up through the day we of course ventured onto Megs Mount just above the new bridge for our first birds eye view of the town and river with its three bridges - old, new and railway viaduct. All major viewpoints along...More

Hi, The walls and ramparts are one and the same but the castle is not. The castle is next to the train station and is basically ruins which you can only partially access. You can walk down to the river and up to the castle... More
