Heritage Open Day: Home to history and the arts, Berwick Barracks has something to offer all ages and celebrates its 300th anniversary this year. It has two museums and an exhibition on the life of the British Infantryman from the 1600s to 1918. Built in the early 18th century to the design of the distinguished architect Nicholas Hawksmoor, the Barracks was among the first in England to be purpose built. It was first quartered in 1721 and remained in active use until 1963 when it ceased to be the depot for the King's Own Scottish Borderers. The Barracks houses the Regimental Museum of the King's Own Scottish Borderers as well as Berwick Museum and Art Gallery.
