Visit Berwick Museum and Art Gallery, located in the Ravensdowne Barracks - the first purpose-built army barracks in England.

Home to the Berwick Burrell Collection, it is popular with visitors - many of whom were stationed at the Barracks which were in use up until 1964.

The Burrell Collection was one of the most generous civic donations to be made in Europe and pulls in the crowds with spectacular pieces on display all summer. The Berwick Burrell Collection of fine and decorative art is not one to miss - an impressive array of artworks to suit every taste.
