How to get here

Berwick-upon-Tweed is the most northerly town in England, located at the mouth of the River Tweed, on England’s North East Coast. It is just south of the border with Scotland.

By train

One of the easiest way to travel to Berwick from other parts of the UK is by train. Berwick is on the East Coast Main Line served by LNER and Cross Country. It is approx. 45mins from either Edinburgh or Newcastle. There are also direct routes from London (3.5 hours), Glasgow (2 hours), Birmingham (4 hours) and Aberdeen (3.5 hours).

The Maltings, the Festival’s main cinema venue and where its office is located, can be reached on foot in less than fifteen minutes from the station, or taxis are available at the station entrance.

By road

Berwick is immediately off the A1, half way between Newcastle and Edinburgh. It takes around 1 and a half hours to drive from either city.

By air

Newcastle and Edinburgh Airports are well served by many airlines including low budget. Trains from either of these cities take approximately 45 minutes (see above).

By bus

There are regular buses running through the town but Berwick is small enough to walk around. Regional bus networks serve Berwick well with routes to; Morpeth, Alnwick, Wooler, Kelso, Galashiels, Eyemouth and Dunbar.
