Culture lovers, school trips and groups will love staying at YHA Berwick – a fascinating building with a lean bigger than the Tower of Pisa! This hostel offers modern facilities in the heart of a historic town, boasting free Wi-Fi, plenty of space to socialise and an on-site working art gallery.
Berwick-upon-Tweed is ideal for study groups, offering the Lowry trail for art lovers and the historic Elizabethan Town Walls. The medieval town has a colourful past and the hostel can help arrange history walks, activities on the River Tweed, and group trips to the theatre. It’s perfect for beachcombing and exploring the landmarks of Northumberland and the Scottish borders too.
YHA Berwick offers great facilities for groups, including two meeting rooms with projectors, flip charts and screens. There’s group catering available, along with a licensed bar in our atmospheric Granary Bistro. How about a day out to Lindisfarne or a day in the town’s museums? You could even head north to Edinburgh or south to Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
