Steeped in history, Berwick has ramparts to explore and also offers some breath-taking views from its Elizabethan town walls. YHA Berwick itself is housed in a 240 year old restored granary.

Meet the team

Manager recommends:

The lowry trail around the town. Follow the mapped route around Berwick which takes in some of the famous sites that Lowry immortalised in his paintings. This is a great way to spend a day seeing the town, taking in some of the wonderful scenery.

Holy Island. Take a trip to the world famous pilgrimage site and spend a day exploring the island and the fantastic surrounding beaches.

The Maltings. For all you culture vultures, why not take in a show at the Maltings theatre. Whether it be a famous comedian, a performance by a touring theatre company or a musical performance, the Maltings has something for all ages all year round.

The Curfew Micro Pub. A must visit for all real ale fans. This friendly, cosy and unique little pub is only a small hop from the hostel and will allow you to sample some of Europes finest beers as well as the famous local banter.
