Join the dots and enjoy the trip.
Visitors to the borderlands often like to follow a themed trail to match their hobbies and interests.
There’s a wealth of information on all kinds of subjects at exploretheborders.com and in this section we have put together a clutch of trails that we think will prove popular.
The headline sectors we have homed in on are Crafts, Antiques, Landmarks and Museums that all offer an entertaining and interesting list of options for day trips.
The borderlands are home to an extended family of highly talented craftspeople whose work in the fields of painting, ceramics, glassware, sculpture and design are recognised as among the best in the UK.
Fans of the Antiques Road Trip and the dulcet tones of Tim Wonacott will already be familiar with many of the antique shops, antique centres and auction houses that are resident in the borderlands.
From Corbridge to Innerleithen there’s a fascinating and potentially rewarding antiques trail to explore – good hunting.
And, not surprisingly, there’s a wealth of outstanding museums and landmarks to visit in the borderlands – from Vindolanda’s famous Roman ‘sandal store’, the Jim Clark museum in Duns commemorating one of Formula 1’s greatest drivers and Hawick’s sons of speed Jimmie Guthrie and Steve ‘Hizzy’ Hislop who raced to world class success in the motorcycling world and have displays at the award winning Wilton Park Museum.
You’ll find more about these examples and lots more at our Trips and Trails section and we would welcome your feedback – drop a line to firstname.lastname@example.org
