There are sev­eral free car parks in Ber­wick, but wait­ing time is lim­ited to two hours and you will need to dis­play a park­ing disc. These cost £1 and are ob­tain­able from the li­brary, tourist in­for­ma­tion cen­tres and some lo­cal busi­nesses. There is no time re­stric­tion in the long-term car parks at Castle­gate and Foul Ford. Head to nearby Spit­tal for a glo­ri­ous beach and fan­tas­tic vis­tas across the wa­ter to the walled town of Ber­wick and the light­house. This was a view favoured by artist LS Lowry, who spent many hol­i­days in Ber­wick. You can fol­low a three-hour trail of his favourite haunts in the town by down­load­ing a leaflet: http://im­ages.vis­it­ber­wick.com/routes/ lowry-trail/lowry-leaflet.pdf. Just south of Ber­wick and Spit­tal is the Pot-a-doodle Do fam­ily ac­tiv­ity cen­tre, camp­site and restau­rant: http://pota­doo­dledo.com. Etal Twenty Es­tates min­utes of­fer a away, host the of ac­tiv­i­ties, Ford and in­clud­ing walks on Flod­den Bat­tle­field and the na­ture re­serve at Ford Moss, ca­noe­ing on the River Till, a steam trip on the Heather­slaw Light Rail­way, or a ride at Kim­mer­ston Rid­ing Cen­tre. Pop into Lady Water­ford Hall to see the as­ton­ish­ing bib­li­cal scenes that she painted as a teach­ing aid for vil­lage chil­dren. Visit www.ford-and-etal.co.uk to find out more.
