Berwick Through Time

THE CASTLE HOTEL - Updated 2020 Prices, Reviews, and Photos (Berwick-upon-Tweed)  - Tripadvisor

Today’s addition to Berwick Through Time is a video about the Castle Hotel. Narrated by Jim Herbert, this short explores the history of the building. Don’s forget that all previous episodes are also available so why not check out Wilmott’s Fortress or the Maclagan Memorial while you’re there. (click here to visit Berwick Through Time)


Have you watched any of our online videos? Don’t miss out! Today I am recommending a film by Linda Bankier about the Greenses. This fascinating video examines the lives of Greenses residents as well as the buildings they lived in. Visiting the former Workhouse and the Pilot Inn Linda Bankier leads you on an enjoyable walk around an often forgotten area of the town. (Click here to view online videos)


While you are visiting our website why not have a go at our Secret Berwick Quiz. With three levels to choose from you can try the questions as a family or against your friends. (Click here to try quiz)


If you fancy a stroll today why not follow one of our trails? There are several to choose from so why not put on your walking shoes and discover Berwick. (Click here to view trails)
