Owner description: The Guernsey Tapestry is a fantastic way to understand the complex history of the islands. Ten panels (all stitched by locals to celebrate the Millenium) beautifully explain the events of each century. An easy to use and understand audio guide adds to the experience (available in English, French and German). A quote from the visitors book 'This was a wonderful way of telling history - I've never seen anything quite like it - don't miss it!'

“The Guernsey Tapestry”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2015 NEW

Brilliant workmanship and a lot to look at. A little bit too crowded if seen at a busy time. There was a good shop with books and other suitable things to buy regarding tapestry. A small but very welcome café on the top floor of the building.

“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2015 NEW

The Guernsey Tapestry is comprised of panels, making up a detailed history of Guernsey. It's accompanied by an audio description panel by panel. Very well put together exhibition, and the lady at the desk was very helpful and informative too.

“A Stitch in Time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2015

A Millennium project I believe and depicting the last, this relatively small exhibition shows ten tapestries with stories to tell.
An audio guide details the clues and images from the various tapestries and explains local history. Well presented but rather short in substance, expect to spend an hour at most here.

“Hampshire Hog”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2015

We were the only ones there so were able to spend as long as we liked looking at them. Very good, but a bit expansive.

“A lovely attraction and good value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2015

The time, effort, work and love that has gone into this attraction is something to behold. It provides a good introduction to the history of Guernsey's history and made me want to learn more. The audio aspect is also good. I would recommend it.
