Very impressive tapestry along the lines of the Bayeux Tapestry. Good video showing the women that actually did the work and the story of how they did it. A must see if visiting Fishguard.

I had read about the tapestry before visiting but was not expecting to be so impressed. The video about the processes involved was also well worth watching. The design and coordination required, quite apart from the embroidery represent a huge undertaking.

If you are in Fishguard, you should go have a look at the tapestry. It’s free, and a very interesting takeoff on the Bayeux Tapestry in France chronicling the Norman Invasion. It was done in 1997, so although it’s quit well done, it is nowhere...More

We were encouraged to visit the tapestry by a local bus driver who recommended it. It is beautifully embroidered by local community groups and is well worth the visit. Don't forget to enjoy the film that explains how the tapestry was designed and completed.

I like visiting tapestries and this one is particularly good. The craftsmanship was superb and the concept was very ambitious. As well as the tapestry is the story of how it was made and who made it - just as interesting as the tapestry itself....More
