This is a charming and reviewing walk which is gentle enough for all age groups. The commentary boards are a great source of information about the history of Berwick.

Hi Alan, There are many places to get onto the Walls - if you are a visitor by car, it's likely you'll park at B&M by Castlegate: nearby there are steps up onto the Walls, and this is also the first 'point of contact' if... More
