We visited this attraction in March 2015. Unfortunately, because the "Summer Season" had not yet started it was very quiet. It is a very interesting little place but we were disappointed to find The Anvil appears to have been moved into the Cottage. Shops OK but rather expensive for the 'close season' café a little on the pricey side. Seems... More

Very enlightening look into by-gone days. It's part of a local historical complex, including the Louisiana Fire Museum..

Very cute place and their restaurant had decently priced food that was pretty good. It was quick service so you don't have to spend most of your time trying to eat.

you can feel the charm of grenta green and the blacksmiths shop adds to it! the shops offer a wide range of goods and different to what you see in everyday shops. maybe be overpriced but then if its something you want its probably not!!! defitatly worth a visit and somewhere to go back to.

Bought a Harris Tweed handbag online which clearly stated was in stock. A week after making payment and waiting on delivery received an email to say it was not in stock and a refund was being arranged. No offer of an alternative, poor customer service and over a week later and still no refund.

The shops, toilets and eatery were all excellent but the Blacksmiths shop was truely dreadful. Tatty, dusty, decrepit displays (wigs slipped sideways, clothes dusty, things broken), more audio visual displays that didn't work than did work. If you want shopping then visit but take your photos in the car park of the outside of the smithy and save the entrance... More

Visited here today and had an enjoyable time. The museum was very interesting. Having 'known' about Gretna Green for all of my life, it was good to finally get there and really learn something about the place and its history. I enjoyed reading the letters that had been written to the blacksmith over the years in particular. The carriages were... More

Massive shopping centre so found it all a bit disappointing. Toilets were huge and nice and clean so that's always a bonus.

I've visited here many times over the years but have seen a big change since I last visited. To say the attraction has become over-commercialised is an understatement. The emphasise is now on shopping. Don't get me wrong, the development of the attraction is lovely, with a nice courtyard area etc but not really in keeping with what the Blacksmith... More
