Visiting Berwick

Whether you’re a Berwick Rangers supporter who lives outwith the town, a visiting supporter, or a ground-hopper looking to catch a game at Shielfield Park, the town of Berwick-upon-Tweed is a fantastic place to spend a day or two.

Berwick, as a town, has great transport links, situated just off the A1 connecting Newcastle to the south and Edinburgh to the north, while it is also on the East Coast Mainline, with Shielfield Park a 20 to 30-minute walk from the railway station. For directions to the ground via road, rail and on foot, click here.

That walk takes visitors through the historic Berwick town centre and, en route, as well as many tourist attractions – including the town’s Elizabethan Walls and Berwick Castle – there are a number of pubs, cafes and restaurants that are well worth a visit, along with some great overnight accommodation.

Check out some of the places you should certainly stop off at if you happen to be in Berwick for a day or two.

The Curfew Micropub

Located on Bridge Street in the centre of town, The Curfew is the most northerly micropub in England. Selling four cask ales that change regularly, three traditional ciders and a selection of bottled craft beers from around the world, The Curfew is the watering hole of choice for many fans prior to heading up to Shielfield Park to cheer on the ‘Gers and is run by lifelong Berwick fan David Cook and his wife, Gemma.

The Curfew has also built an esteemed reputation since opening in 2015, winning the CAMRA Northumberland Pub Of The Year award in both 2016 and 2018. The micropub is also the player sponsor for the 2020/21 season of Berwick midfielder Lewis Barr.
