THE BAILIWICK OF GUERNSEY MILLENNIUM TAPESTRY
1000 years of local history in ten embroidered panels
The Guernsey Tapestry Gallery houses The Bailiwick of Guernsey Millennium Tapestry, a project that involved the whole community. It illustrates 1000 years of local history in ten panels of embroidered canvas work, each panel covering one century. The original aim of the project was to provide a lasting reminder of the Millennium celebrations, involve the whole community and encourage people to look more deeply in to the Island’s history. The panels were stitched by the residents of the Bailiwick with each one bearing the crest of the parish that stitched it. The story in each panel is brought to life by an audio guide which is available in English, French and German. The Gallery provides a permanent home for the Tapestry where it is preserved and displayed for the enjoyment of all.
In the gift shop you will find unique gifts, souvenirs, inspirational embroidery books and yarns.
The Gallery is situated on the lower floor of the Dorey Centre and may be accessed from St James Street by external steps or via the entrance to the Dorey Centre in St James Street by stairs or lift. For parking availability please call the Gallery in advance.
