Berwick Walking Festival 2015
Mon 23rd February 2015
Building on the success of last year’s Berwick-upon-Tweed Walking Festival, this April’s event has been extended from two to six days.
With so many people visiting the region for the event, the organisers have been very ambitious with their 2015 plans and the bookings to date have again exceeded all expectations.
This year’s event even includes a series of day walks along St Cuthbert’s Way, with daily transport every day from Berwick-upon-Tweed. This series of walks compliments the other eight walks which include crossing the Pilgrims Causeway to Holy Island, Berwick to Scremerston Mine Walk, a walk looking at why is Berwick-upon-Tweed, a Berwick to Eyemouth coastal walk, a number of walks up the Tweed Estuary as well as Nordic Walking taster sessions and walks.
Altogether it will be a packed programme with the first Saturday having 6 walks alone.
Jon Monks, from Shepherds Walks, who is again working with Berwick Town Council to deliver this year’s festival said ‘The organising committee where astounded with how popular last year’s event was and we have just under 200 people booked on this year’s festival already. With such good public transport links many people are visiting Berwick-upon-Tweed for the duration of the festival’.
It is hoped the event will continue to grow and become an important date in the calendar for Berwick-upon-Tweed.
