Old and Young
 
Of course Berwickers grew up with it - but as a visitor you will find yourself stepping back in time around every corner as you wander the ancient streets.
 
With pictures of many of Berwick street scenes made famous by L.S.Lowry (1887-1976) and hanging in galleries around the world - you can be forgiven that Déjà feeling!
 
Sir William Wallace of Ellerslie Or maybe coming across gun emplacements high up in the Elizabethan walls will remind you of the bloody battles of the Borders. Part of the quartered body of Sir William Wallace (1272-1305) lies buried here in Berwick!
