The Guernsey Tapestry is a modern tapestry with each panel showing a 100 years of the history is the island. It took over 2 years (at 25 hours per week) to sew!
You and the kids can learn about each panel using the audio guide (included in the price). This is available in French and German as well as English, so you have a choice for any budding linguists!
The tapestry is on display in a gallery that was built for the purpose and includes an exhibition explaining how it was designed and created. Many of those who made this tapestry volunteer here and enjoy talking about their experiences making it.
A visit won't take more than about half an hour but is worth the visit if you are in the area and is a great chance to show the kids an interesting and different way to learn about the history of Guernsey.
