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.
