The Lookout: Exploring Berwick-upon-Tweed

If you’re ever passing through Berwick-upon Tweed, or more especially if you live here, you might like to find The Lookout. It’s where the town’s medieval bridge meets the Berwick side of the River Tweed and it’s a thing of beauty. I would say that as it’s run by a couple of friends of mine, […]
