Ideal place to find out about how the British army developed over the centuries to the present day. I could have spent the day here and left with head bursting with facts which are sio well displayed that they are never dull. Even my wife enjoyed this!

This series of buildings house many exhibitions - local regiments and also exhibits concerning Berwick itself. We have visited on many occasions and on each time see something new and different. In fact our last visit(s) there was so much to see that we had to go twice ! Some of the exhibits are quite realistic (and maybe a bit... More

We had a great time looking round the barracks, the way all the rooms are set up is great, it was so interesting reading about all the soldiers and looking at the items.

Visited Berwick, not really knowing what to expect. My husband and I walked the military ramparts, which were breathtaking. They are so well kept and the views are amazing. We walked for a couple of hours and I don't think we covered it all. A haven for dog walkers also. Well worth a visit.

A basic but intriguing local and military history museum based in the old barracks buildings beside the city defensive walls. The section on military history and particularly the Kings Own Scottish Borderers was especially interesting. A short walk around the corner and you can walk the old defensive walls and see the gun placements.
