Royal Border Bridge by Tim Berrall

If you are arriving by train, you will first discover Castlegate, an incredibly varied shopping street with everything from a baby clothing boutique and a Danish inspired homeware shop, to an excellent second hand bookshop.

Berwick shopping

Have a pleasant shopping trip during your stay

Berwick is a compact town with many of the main shopping streets held within the town walls. The twice-weekly street market is held on Marygate, the main street through town, with the imposing Town Hall standing at its centre. The Tourist Information Centre is located on Walkergate (upstairs in the library) and open all year round, selling souvenirs, maps and guidebooks.

For local retailers head to Bridge Street which has a high concentration of these businesses, with art galleries, music and antique shops as well as places to eat, the Granary YHA and an alehouse well-known for its lively music scene. West Street, a cobbled hill running down to the Old Bridge, also has local shops with gifts, clothing and handmade chocolates on offer.

Local markets can be found with Berwick-upon-Tweed

Hide Hill is a surprisingly wide and open street which lies parallel to West Street and is home to almost all of the town’s banks, a pub, hotels, a wine bar and a dress shop. The bottom of Hide hill leads you through one of the town gateways and onto the Quayside, for views across the river. Other shopping streets in town include Woolmarket and Church Street.

The Retail park in Tweedmouth, on the south of the River, has a handful of larger stores and both sides of the river are well-served with large supermarkets.

Berwick-upon-Tweed is a Fair Trade Town - Buying Fair Trade means Fair Prices in the developing World - look out for retailers displaying the Fair Trade window sticker.

Berwick’s Guild governed the town from the middle ages to the 1830s. Its Royal Charter granted the right to hold twice-weekly markets and what is now the annual May Fair.
