11th – 20th September 2020


Berwick Heritage Open Days is part of England’s largest grass roots heritage festival celebrating the heritage, community and history of Berwick, Tweedmouth and Spittal. It’s your chance to see hidden places and try out new experiences—and it’s all FREE.

Berwick is one of the jewels in the national Heritage Open Days crown. We outperform larger towns in the number of events we put on for locals and visitors alike. Earlier this year, because of the pandemic, the steering group decided that for the safety of the public and our volunteers, we cannot put on any of the normal events this year. Instead, we are maintaining our position at the forefront of the national festival and are providing a host of online events to inspire you to visit the sites. Use the films as a guide on location. You can discover Berwick, Tweedmouth and Spittal in a whole, new way.

We love putting on Heritage Open Days and we know you love taking part in Heritage Open Days, so we are doing our best to keep this going and to help publicise Berwick as a premier tourist destination for 2021 when, hopefully, the event can go ahead as normal.
