for Riding the Bounds as your favourite British event.

Every year on May 1 the “Riding of the Bounds” takes place in Berwick upon Tweed. In 1438 Berwick became part of England after changing hands between England and Scotland several times. Traditionally, local residents riding on horseback scour the Berwick boundaries to ensure the Scottish have not encroached onto English soil!
