In Person Events
The Berwick Bridges Exhibition continues in Berwick Visitor Centre, opening hours are 10am – 3pm.
Today the spotlight falls on one of our video tours – Riverside Walls. This fascinating tour of the walls from Nessgate to Quay Walls lets you explore places that are normally closed to the public. This fascinating video explains why the walls look like they do and and points out a lot of hidden features.
Coming up tomorrow we have our first live online event – Heritage Question Time. Are there any questions you have about Berwick, Tweedmouth or Spittal? Now is your chance to have them answered! Join our panel of experts – Linda Bankier, Catherine Kent and Jim Herbert – to find out the answers and explore the history of the town.
