We didn’t use the map that’s available but spotted quite a few of the Lowry points on our walk around Berwick and this added interest as we found them. A great idea and makes a stroll around more enjoyable

We've only walked along the Spittal promenade part of the trail but really enjoyed it. There's pictures along the way identifying some of Lowry's paintings. Super to walk in his footsteps.

Interesting route around Berwick old town, did not continue on the Spittal side of the Tweed due to strong winds blowing all day. Enjoyed wandering along the walls and attractive streets finding the same views Lowry had captured.

The Lowry trail is an interesting way to see the town. Some of the notice boards are in Berwick and some across the river in Spittal. It does take a while to see them all and read the information, so wear comfortable shoes.

Not a great fan of Lowry but certainly a walk worth exploring if you enjoy art and the process. A good focus for an alternativecwalk around the town and to see highlights.

This was an eye-opener. Reproductions of his paintings with intelligent comments gave a special interest to our visit.

wonderful following the trail around the town and seeing where Lowry stayed and what inspired him to paint the figures for his work
