Tweedmouth West End Tour

West End, Tweedmouth, Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberland, TD15 2HD

For too long, the history of Tweedmouth has been neglected. This tour, led by local historian, Jim Herbert, sheds light on many aspects of old Tweedmouth, from medieval parliaments to social life and its forgotten industries.

The West End of Tweedmouth is now a quiet residential area overshadowed by the Royal Tweed Bridge. However, in the past, it was very different - full of people and industry.
