A Town Hall has stood on this site since at least the 16th century. Begun in 1750, this building stands majestically at the south end of Marygate. Until the 1830s, the Guild of Freemen governed civic affairs in Berwick from this building.

A guided tour of the Town Hall allows you to visit the jail and old town courtroom (reconstructed in the debtors’ jail). Secret gems include the 18th century graffiti in the ‘drunks’ cell’ and the ‘condemned’ cell!Tours run at 10.30am and 2pm, Monday-Friday only, from Easter to end of September. Group rates available.

Berwick Town Hall can host your wedding ceremony and reception. Visit My Northumberland Wedding for info.
