The River Till is a river of north-eastern Northumberland. It is a tributary of the River Tweed, of which it is the only major tributary to flow wholly in England. The upper part of the Till, which rises on Comb Fell in the Cheviots, is known as the River Breamish.
Its tributaries include Wooler Water, which originates in the Cheviot Hills, and the River Glen in Glendale. It meets the Tweed near Berwick-upon-Tweed and Twizell Bridge. According to local folklore:

- Whar ye droon yin man
- I droon twa"
