This bridge is about to have £7 million spent on its upkeep. Meanwhile, it is an interesting historical link between Scotland and England. You can walk or drive over it and combine a visit with the Honey Farm

Short walk down the hill from the honey farm and well worth it. Was once the longest suspension bridge in the world and the oldest still taking cars. Great views over the Tweed on a clear day, into Scotland and back again. Lovely spot...

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.
