Offering a brighter and more comfortable space for passengers, the space was officially re-opened to customers on Monday 14 by Mayor of Berwick Anne Forbes.

The station, which was damaged earlier in the year, has undergone significant improvements to offer a more enjoyable experience for customers.

Cllr Forbes met with David Horne, LNER managing director and Alan Riley, LNER’s head of stations, after receiving a tour of the newly refurbished areas of the station, which sits immediately north of the iconic Royal Border Bridge.
