Explore one of the bloodiest borders in the world

Learn the dramatic stories of the Anglo-Scottish border

England and Scotland have a bloody history of warfare, conflict, and battles! This warfare exists right back into the early medieval period when the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Northumbria, the Scots and the Picts duelled it out to see who would rule in Northern Britain. Following the Norman conquest, the thrones of England and Scotland continued to battle to decide where the border would finally be set.

 On this tour we will collect you from Berwick upon Tweed and take you on a historic tour of the region, heading to Melrose and the Roman fort of Trimontium before working back along the Castles built along the Tweed, such as Norham, telling the history of this area and how the modern border was formed.

Pickup & Drop Off

We offer the option for transport to collect you from a pre-arranged location (approximately 9am) and return you after the tour.
