Journey through the Quaker Story at the Quaker Tapestry Museum … with incredible displays, fun learning for kids, affordable souvenirs and a café we locals swear by.
The Quaker Tapestry Exhibition always surprises people. It showcases the incredible story of the Quaker Tapestry itself – created over 15 years by over 4000 people – and creates a world of fun learning for kids of all ages with interactive displays, films, dressing up, playing and much more.
Journey through the Quaker influence on the modern world: explore the industrial revolution, developments in science and medicine, astronomy, the abolition of slavery, social reform, and ecology; and delight in the detail of the stunning needlework and the craftsmanship involved in its creation.
Traveller and writer Alexander McCall Smith has described the Quaker Tapestry as one of the six best tapestries to see in the world.
You can also admire the Georgian Meeting House, which celebrated its 200th anniversary in 2016, and relax in the ever-popular cafe.
