It would be nice to think that it is always as quiet and tranquil as it was when we visited. I suspect it does attract a fair few visitors. Constructed as a suspension bridge to link England and Scotland. Lovely views of The Tweed and...More

We were perhaps fortunate that the bridge had re-opened and we could drive across from Scotland into England. It obviously needs some repairs so that this historic link can be maintained. There are beautiful views from the bridge back towards Paxton House. This ancient bridge...More

You can still drive right down to the bridge to view it, but it is currently closed so you cannot drive over. They are trying to raise funds to do the necessary restoration so it may be quite a while until it is reopened.

We visited the area and found out through a leaflet at our cottage about the Honey Farm and the Union Bridge. What a find! The bridge is a reminder of history and just how ingenious suspension bridges actually are! Adults and children loved it. We...More

You can if you are fit and a keen walker - it is about 5 miles from Berwick Town Centre. If you have the time and energy, go out on the Paxton Road, and return by way of the English side, it's a round trip of about 12 miles.
