The Guildhall in Berwick-upon-Tweed (the northernmost town in England), Northumberland, England.
Built in the 1750s, it is possibly the town’s most handsome building, facing and dominating broad Marygate. Of rich brown stone in a Classical design, it has a grand portico with giant Tuscan columns and a tall spire.
The bells ring for Holy Trinity Church as well as the curfew. The top floor used to be a jail and prisoners were aired on the balcony round the roof.
The restoration of the hall reinstated the Buttermarket in the colonnaded rear ground floor and brought in a coffee-bar and small shop.
