The Town Hall in Berwick-upon-Tweed by 


An English Heritage Grade I Listed Building

The Town Hall in Berwick-upon-Tweed (the northernmost town in England), Northumberland.

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.

Berwick-upon-Tweed Town Hall is an English Heritage Grade I Listed building, English Heritage List Entry: 1042466.

    I see you managed to sneak past the border guards and into England. I do hope your passport was stamped correctly :-)

  • Cheers mate, Berwick-upon-Tweed is a special case, we Scots still consider it part of Scotland …

    This may make me a traitor, but I too feel Berwick should be part of Scotland.
