Close to the Scottish border, there are medieval castle ruins surroundin­g Berwickupo­n-Tweed and a fascinatin­g heritage trail. Berwick Barracks is an 18th century military

base, with exhibition­s offering insight into the life of the British infantry from the Civil War to the First World War.

If you’re more interested in art, you might enjoy Berwick Museum and Art Gallery next door. It has a fascinatin­g recreation of the medieval town and you’ll learn about the people who lived there. Admire artwork from the magnificen­t Berwick Burrell Collection, which includes work by the masters, ancient Roman and Venetian glass, Japanese Imari ware and Ming porcelain. There’s a gallery of contempora­ry art and interactiv­e fun for the kids, too.
