General Information
1-3 Woolmarket is located within the historic town of Berwick-upon-Tweed (population 14.000), north Northumberland which is situated approximately equi-distant between Edinburgh to the north and Newcastle-Upon-Tyne to the south (65 miles each way). The town is served by both the A1 trunk road and the main line east coast railway network providing regular access to Edinburgh and Newcastle-upon-Tweed (approximately 45 minutes) and London (approximately 3 and a half hours).

Although not a large town, Berwick-upon-Tweed is regarded as a principle market town serving north Northumberland and the eastern Scottish Borders. As a result, the town effectively has a catchment population of around 42,000.

Modern Berwick-upon-Tweed is an attractive coastal town which offers a range of retail, leisure and banking services. It also benefits from being a significant tourist destination particularly in the summer months when the population is reported to effectively double.

More precisely the subjects are situated just off the junction with the main retail areas of Marygate and Hide Hill. Within the immediate locality commercial occupiers include Fords Bakery, Post Office (sorting offices), Borderline Tattoo Studio, Bon Appetite café, Becky’s Café, Dempsters Optometrists, Subway Sandwich shop and The Vinery Cafe.
