Barracks were interesting and was surprised how large the complex was. Lots of well presented information about its history and various uses over the years. Good place to go if raining as lots of cover. We visited on a Tuesday afternoon and more or less had the place to ourselves.

Another jewel in the crown of Berwick. Take time out and take in some of the recent military history of Berwick. You will kick yourself if you miss this.

Spent a long time in the oldest part, reading about the early history of Berwick, very interesting and very well done. The memorials in the modern history section were very poignant.

Different levels reached by stairs and a lift, it takes you around in date order from the earliest times of the regiments and battles up to the present day. Very informative which keeps your interest throughout.

I have visited the Barracks a number of times over the years, usually with my son. There are 3 different museums to see, 1 about Berwick, 1 about the Army from the beginning and 1 about the Kings own Scottish Borderers (the best one in my opinion) and I find it a lovely way to spend time. Today we spent... More
