THE GREAT Tapestry of Scotland has been awarded Visit Scotland’s Days Out Incentive Fund.

The Tapestry tells the inspirational true story of the country’s history, heritage and culture (from 8500 BC to present day). It was hand stitched by over 1000 people in communities across Scotland and transported by land, sea and air to come together.

It is made up of 160 panels and 300 miles of wool (enough to lay the entire length of Scotland from the Border with England to the tip of the Shetland in the North Atlantic).

The visitor centre in Galashiels will now be offering half price day tickets from Monday 8 November 2021 until 18 February 2022.

During this special offer adult tickets will be £5.25, concession tickets £4.75, child ticket £2.25, Burns family ticket 4 tickets at £2 per ticket, Inglis family ticket 5 tickets at £2.25 per ticket.
