Berwick-Upon-Tweed is England’s northernmost city and a salt-encrusted fortress town that holds two honors: one for being the most fought-over settlement in European History, and the other is that its football team (the Berwick Rangers) is the only English team to play in the Scottish League. Berwick’s superb walls were begun in 1558 to reinforce an earlier set built during the reign of Edward II. They represented state of the art military technology of the day. Today you can walk almost the entire length of the walls, a circuit of about a mile. It’s a walk that is highly recommended because it offers magnificent wide-open views of the area. Berwick Barracks is another worthwhile site to see, and is the oldest barracks in Britain which now houses the By Beat of Drum Museum, which chronicles the history of British soldiers from 1600 to 1900. Inside the town hall is the Cell Block Museum, devoted to crime and punishment, which offers tours to the prison every day.
