Scotland’s history is Scotland’s story…..
Battles, Tragedy, Kings & Queens, War, Innovation, Sport, Religion, Romans, Vikings, Abbeys, Castles and Comedy…..
Discover 420 million years of Scotland’s History, Heritage, Innovations and Culture with the Great Tapestry of Scotland.
Our award winning, purpose built Centre opened in August 2021 and has recently won Edinburgh Architectural Association – Large Project Award and RICS Scotland – Best Public Building award.
We pride ourselves in our commitment to serve fresh, seasonal and locally sourced food in Stitchers Café. We have recently achieved our Taste our Best award, acknowledging 60% of our menu comes from Scottish suppliers, and some even coming from Galashiels itself.

Due to routine conservation work, our Tapestry Gallery will be closed from Tuesday 5th to Tuesday 12th December. During this time our café will be remaining open, so we look forward to continuing to see you.
After a fantastic two years of opening, and welcoming thousands of visitors to enjoy the beauty and history of the panels, we will be carrying out routine inspections to ensure the preservation of the Tapestry for many generations to follow. We apologise for any inconvenience and look forward to welcoming you soon!
As a registered charity even making a small donation would help us to ensure the legacy of our national asset, The People’s Story of Scotland.
