Places to eat & drink in Eyemouth.

The historic town of Eyemouth lies five miles north of the border where the mouth of the River Eye provides a natural harbour and sandy beaches. Fishing at Eyemouth dates back to the 13th century and today the harbour is still active with its colourful fleet. The local museum, recently refurbished, illustrates the town's history, with a magnificent tapestry as its centrepiece commemorating the great east coast fishing disaster of 1881 when 189 fishermen were lost at sea. Visitors to Eyemouth will enjoy free parking and local leaflets including a town trail, mini-guide, town plan and coastal.

A highlight of the town's annual events calendar is a Herring Queen Festival in July when the flag-bedecked fishing fleet escorts the newly chosen Queen from St. Abbs to Eyemouth. The Berwickshire coastline, with its small villages of St. Abbs, Coldingham and Burnmouth, provides a fascinating and beautiful range of scenery - from high cliffs and deep clear water to sandy coves and quaint fishing harbours, offering recreational pursuits such as birdwatching, walking, fishing and diving. To the west of the town, near the Al is Ayton Castle, an imposing Victorian mansion built of red sandstone. Paxton House, west of Berwick, is a perfect example of 18th century classical architecture.

Places of interest in and around Eyemouth include Ayton Castle, Paxton House, Eyemouth Museum, Kittiwake Gallery, Chain Bridge Honey Farm, Eyemouth Golf Club and the Swimming Pool.
