Berwick-upon-Tweed will provide the setting for the start of Stage 3 of the Tour of Britain 2019 -North of Tyne.

 

The market town of Berwick is the Northernmost town in England and throughout its turbulent past it has been captured and sacked 13 times.  It' s great Elizabethan walls and Britain's earliest Barracks buildings are testament to this.  In more peaceful times Berwick now boasts sandy beaches, numerous festivals and the Lowry Trail.

 

Starting from the historic Town Hall on Marygate, the riders roll out over the River Tweed on the start of the race to Newcastle.
