Really pleased we made the effort to take in this walk. Although it was a cold and windy day, the stunning views made it worthwhile. Would definitely recommend.

Do not miss the guided walk led by Derek. The town is a charning unspoilt Georgian gem and the walls extend completely around the town.

Great for photography, great for those interested in the history of Berwick and great for those who just want a 40 minute walk to take in the sea air and views. Recommended.
