Berwick Visitor Centre and former Methodist Church – The River Tweed and Salmon Fishing

Find out about Berwick in its newest Visitor Centre sited in a former Methodist Church. See the Tweed 900 Tapestry, a film about Berwick's history and view a film and exhibition about salmon fishing on the River Tweed.

Originally there were two Methodist Chapels in Berwick - Primitive and Wesleyan. This building was the Wesleyan Methodist Chapel which was opened in 1797 with alterations made in 1878. In the early 1920s both congregations amalgamated and worshipped together in this building until 2017 when it was sold. The building was reopened as a Visitor Centre in 2019.

 Salmon fishing has been connected with Berwick and the River Tweed since the medieval period. It's very different now to then. The exhibition and film provide some background to its importance in the past and what happens today.
