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. I would loved to have spent longer here reading it all but we have a 2 year old and she was rather bored, more for older children... More

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.

Really enjoyed this museum full of interesting facts and as with most of the places to visit around this area was very reasonably priced.

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.

Run by English Heritage, it houses the Kings Own Scottish Border Regiment Museum, EH museum showing barrack life, and the Berwick Town Museum which we didn't visit on this occasion. Well worth the less than £4 each. Good, and helpful assistant at entrance explained the features of the museums to us before committing ourselves.

Saw this from the outside and WOW, really magical and very historical. This really is the saviour to the tow which I have to say I expected more to it. Would recommend a visit to here and should we have more time next time, we will.

The barracks were very interesting and gave a real feel as to what life was like for the soldiers who were stationed there. So much of the history was recent and the medal gallery was very moving. The telephone was a real treat for the kids!
