The River Tweed ( ) is long and flows primarily through the Borders region of Englandmarker and Scotlandmarker. It rises on Tweedsmuirmarker at Tweed's Well near where the Clyde, draining northwest, and the Annanmarker draining south also rise. "Annan, Tweed and Clyde rise oot the ae hillside" as the Border saying has it. It drains the entire Borders region. Its lower reaches mark the Scottish border with Englandmarker for near Berwick-upon-Tweedmarker. The Tweed is one of the great salmon rivers of Great Britainmarker.

Major towns through which the Tweed flows include Peeblesmarker, Galashielsmarker, Melrosemarker, Kelsomarker, Coldstreammarker and Berwick-upon-Tweedmarker, where it flows into the North Seamarker.

The Tweed valley is also a very interesting area when it comes to looking at the glacial history of Britain. The valley floor on which the river currently flows is a drumlin field and is the relic of a paleo ice stream that flowed through the area during the last glaciation.

River Tweed is the only river in England where an Environment Agency rod licence is not required for angling.
