Berwick upon Tweed
Historic Berwick upon Tweed suffered terribly during the wars of Scottish independence. Sacked
by Edward 1st, the hammer of the Scots it was rebuilt time and again. The town feels more Scottish than English
which probably reflects the closeness of Edinburgh. We loved being able to walk around the old town walls and look
down onto the harbour. Parking can be a nightmare and the town itself is always very busy.
Here is the google map for Berwick, which we think shows the coastal beaches and bays quite neatly
