Berwick is a town in the county of Northumberland, just three miles from the Scottish borders and benefits from being a coastal town; ideal for sandy beaches and riverside walks. It is also a haven for walkers and cyclists.
Berwick hasn’t always been a peaceful town. Poor Berwick was tossed pillar to post between England and Scotland, before it fell into English hands in 1482. Berwick’s great Elizabethan walls were built to keep invading Scots from entering the town. However, Berwick is very much in Scotland these days!
