My 'Second' Home

This is where I live when I am not happily ensconsed in Leicester studying etc. Situated on the England/Scotland border, it's a lovely wee town with it's fair hlping of historical significance and a nice crowd who live here today. I'd recommend the town to anyone for a day trip, and the area for anyone for as long as they've got.

This isn't exactly a Metropolis

This is Berwick Main Street, the large (ish) building is the town hall, the centre of town, you have to usually negotiate this street when heading anywhere in town. It also marks the centre of the 'walled' part of Berwick. i.e the part of town still inside the old Elizabethan fortifications. Although Berwick extends far beyond these walls. Also as this picture should show, Berwick is not on a 'tropical' coastline!

Natural Beauty

Berwick is justifiably famous for it's political history, it's significance in the many, many wars and disagreements between England & Scotland. However it is also the centre of a beautifull part of the UK. The North Sea may look cold, (erm... cause it is, NEVER warm enough to swim in) and the weather is often uninviting, but the coastline along this area is lovely. There are some excellent beaches (Pictured: Scremerston Beach, 10 mins from Berwick Town). There is an endless potential of what you can idle the hours away wandering about, through, or over in this part of the world.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Charecter, History, and Beauty.
  • Cons:Weather, Quality of local Football Team, and lack of excitement.
  • In a nutshell:I love Berwick, proud to live there, it's a truly unique place, one of very few truly unique places I know!
