Quay Walls is the part of Berwick upon Tweed's historic and impressive Elizabethan town walls that overlook the Quayside and River Tweed and therefore in the heart of this bustling town. Berwick upon Tweed is England's most northerly town sitting a few miles south of the Scottish Border and has a comprehensive range of shops and utilities with a number of supermarkets, national and local retailers and the award winning Berwick Maltings Theatre. The town has excellent transport links with a mainline station on the East Coast Line which has regular services to London (three and a half hours) and most intervening stations and notably Edinburgh (40mins) and Newcastle upon Tyne (45mins). Berwick upon Tweed is surrounded by some of the most stunning countryside in the UK with the Cheviot Hills to the south, the Lammermuir Hills to the North and the beautiful Tweed valley stretching into the Scottish Borders to the west. The sandy beaches of the north east coast are close at hand as are the vertiginous cliffs of the Berwickshire Coast.
