Walking in the Area

Berwick is a great base for anyone wishing to explore the hills and coast of north Northumberland and the Scottish Borders on foot.

From the town centre there are lovely walks on either side of the River Tweed, across the Border along the rocky Berwickshire coast, or southwards to the beaches at Spittal and Cocklawburn and on to Holy Island or beyond.

A programme of walks is organised by the Berwick-upon-Tweed Group of the Ramblers Association

You need travel only a few miles by car, bus or bicycle to enjoy the peaceful solitude of the Cheviot Hills, or the sandy beaches and dunes along the Northumberland Heritage Coast. You can often walk for miles before you meet anyone else, alone with the sound of the breeze and the wild birds.

The district is also crossed by several long-distance footpaths:-

St. Cuthbert’s Way - Melrose to Holy Island (100.5km/62.5mi)

St. Oswald’s Way - Holy Island to Heavenfield (156km/97mi)

The Northumberland Coastal Path - Berwick to Cresswell (103km/64mi)

Berwickshire Coastal Path - Berwick-upon-Tweed to Cockburnspath (45km/28mi)
