Berwick upon Tweed (population circa 14,000) is England’s most northern town, being located in North Northumberland within a few miles of the Scottish Border.

Throughout its history the town has been occupied as a military outpost, but now thrives as a regional market town and commercial centre as well as being a significant tourist destination, particularly during the summer months.

The town is situated approximately halfway between Edinburgh to the north and Newcastle upon Tyne to the south (65 miles each way) and is served by both the A1(T) and the main line East Coast railway network which provides regular access to Edinburgh and Newcastle (approximately 45 minutes each).

5 Walkergate occupies a prominent retail site close to the junction of Walkergate and Marygate, the town’s primary shopping area. The property is sited between H B Longbone and Son and Northeast Mobility and is in close proximity to a variety of other outlets which include Iceland, Ladbrokes, the Post Office, a butchers, café and Chinese restaurant.

The property comprises the ground floor of a two storeyed, mid-terraced building and includes a well shaped front shop, a utility room/store and a WC.

Until recently the shop has been occupied by a tattooist. It is now available with vacant possession.

The property is built out of part stone, part brick (externally rendered and painted) under a pantiled roof.

Total NIA: 47.37sq m (509.70sq ft)
Reduced Zone A Area: 28.99sq m (311.93sq ft)
