Berwick-upon-Tweed is on the North Sea Northumberland coastline and is the northern most town in England, located just 4km (2.5 miles) from the Scottish border. Berwick-upon-Tweed has four sandy beaches, beautiful riverside (River Tweed) walks and great nearby coastline. Due to it's border location the town has had a turbulent past with many battles between the Scots and English. This history can still be seen today with Elizabethan town walls and the barracks. L S Lowry produced more than thirty drawings and paintings of the Berwick area. A Lowry Trail will take you through many of the famous locations and is approximately 5-6 miles long. Why not join Lowry in making Berwick a base from which to explore the Northumberland area.
