The Great Tapestry of Scotland

After a fantastic five weeks, the Great Tapestry of Scotland exhibition at New Lanark is now closed. Over 13,000 visitors came through our doors for the chance to see the stunning Scottish artwork. After hosting the Great Tapestry of Scotland, New Lanark are delighted to announce we will once again be exhibiting the Prestonpans Tapestry from 27 January - 19 March 2015. 

Did you visit the Great Tapestry of Scotland at New Lanark? We'd be very grateful if you could take a few minutes to complete our survey about the exhibition.

The Great Tapestry of Scotland will next be exhibited at Stirling Castle from 31 January - 8 March 2015.
