I haven't revisited for a while as I now live in Leeds, however, it may be of interest to some that I worked on the renovation of this monument for almost 8 years...The Barracks are now virtually 300 years old and have a fascinating history which I have no need to repeat here and spoil the experience. I was working... More

We are English Heritage members so had free entry which is always good as you don't feel as if you need to look at every exhibit to get your money's worth. It's actually very good though; there's lots to see and several tableaux so the boys had something more realistic and informative to look at. The exhibition of the history... More

I went in because I was an English Heritage member, and I wanted to explore the space. Not really into military history but there was one exhibition still open and I gained some insight into the awful conditions experienced by the soldiers. But it was the space and the building that I enjoyed.

Visited quite late in the day so would love to revisit again to see more. The lady on reception very nice. The displays we saw were very impressive and interesting. Have been to other barracks but thought these were the best we have seen and is definitely on the list to visit again when in Berwick. Free car park opposite... More

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
