    Ancient castles that witnessed border battles over one thousand years ago, gushing rivers that flow into the waters of the North Sea, and impressive bridges spanning between England and Scotland – the final stage of your journey along the Pennine Cycleway does not disappoint.

    With the rambling hills and bigger climbs behind you, today is an easy 30 mile (50 km) stretch leading you from Wooler to Berwick-Upon-Tweed. You will mostly cycle along quiet country lanes with a short off-road section along the river near Etal. With a castle, pottery and cafe, Etal is a quaint place to take a break.

    From Norham, the route heads East towards the sea and the end of the Pennine Cycleway. You will follow the River Tweed as it flows along the border between England and Scotland. At the Union Suspension Bridge, you will cross into Scotland and join a B-road that leads you into Berwick-Upon-Tweed.

    When you spot the Sustrans signpost pointing to Derby at Berwick-Upon-Tweed’s railway station – you’ve made it! Congratulations - you’ve conquered the hardest route on the National Cycle Network.

    Berwick-Upon-Tweed has direct train connections to London, Birmingham, Glasgow, Newcastle, and Edinburgh to help you get home. Don’t forget to book a space for your bike in advance.
