About Berwick Castle

Berwick Castle was a medieval castle originally built by King David I of Scotland in the 12th century and rebuilt in the thirteenth century by King Edward I of England.

Located near the border between Scotland and England, Berwick Castle was an important stronghold and changed hands between the two sides several times in the course of history.

Despite being reconstructed in the 17th and 18th centuries, Berwick Castle is now a ruin maintained and managed by English Heritage. Visitors can walk around the site freely and explore the remains at their own pace.
