Where else can you find a puffin festival, international music events and a cavalcade of 150 horses and riders setting off to ‘ride the bounds’, but in Northumberland?
From food festivals to agricultural shows celebrating rural life, Northumberland plays host to a host of events throughout the year.
WALKS AROUND THE PARK
Berwick Railway Station, Railway Street, Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberland, TD15 1NF
Discover Castle Vale Park and Coronation Park on either side of the railway station, where recent investment from Heritage Lottery Fund and Big Lottery has reinvigorated these two little gems.
Castle Vale Park, just off Railway Street and Tweed Street, contains a lily pond, shelters and pergolas, rockeries and fantastic views of the Royal Border Bridge. Coronation Park, off Castle Terrace, contains beautiful planting, a pergola in the Arts and Craft style of the era of its original laying out, and stunning westward views of the Tweed estuary.
Both parks contain space to sit or take a picnic, relics or views of the remains of Berwick Castle, and routes down towards the New Road and the River Tweed.
There are regular walks and events in the parks, and if you would like to get actively involved why not join the Friends of Castle Parks or come along and help out with some volunteer tasks like gardening or willow spiling.
