The local area guide to living in Berwick Upon Tweed

Based in Northumberland County, Berwick upon Tweed is just 2.5 miles away from the Scottish border. This positioning made it a key city during the border war between Scotland and England – the history behind the dramatic walls that offer a spectacular view of the River Tweed. You can also see the Royal Border Bridge, which is one of three bridges connecting the town with Tweedmouth.

This unusual look and bohemian atmosphere has attracted a community of artists, as does the annual music and media arts festival.
