So, last Friday I set off with my fellow tourists and our great driver guide Gillian for a little adventure into the borders. First stop on our tour was a coffee break at the charming town of Kelso. The town is a typical twee Scottish border town, and has a nice suprisngly European looking main square, and a cute coffee shop called The Coffee House. They also have a nice ruin of an Abbey which was founded in the 12th Century by some monks.
I loved the main water feature as you walk into the gardens, it cascades down the hill in something similar to the one I saw earlier this year in Barcelona. The gardens also feature a poisonous plants garden, a cherry orchard and a rose garden. All of the water features were a real highlight for me and I spent a good two hours exploring.
After Alnwick we jumped back on the bus and headed to the border town of Berwick upon Tweed which has changed hands between the Scots and the English some 13 times. We stopped near the harbourside to admire the view of the bridges and to meet some of the local seals.
