Explore the borders between the Kingdoms of England and Scotland

The scenic borders of England and Scotland were once a hard-fought battlefields

The English-Scottish border is a bloody region. For hundreds of years, the English and Scots fought against one and other, with kings fighting for land and dominance and the ordinary man fighting for survival and the hope that his land and family would be safer.

 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.
