About the Tapestry

The Guernsey Tapestry was a community project commemorating the turn of the millennium. It shows 1000 years of the island’s history in a total of 10 tapestries, each covering one century.

The embroideries show great attention to detail and are an enjoyable introduction to the history of Guernsey.

The permanent exhibition is housed in the gallery at Dorey Centre, in St Peter Port, not far from Candie Gardens.

An audio guide available in English, French and German will talk you through the Islanders’ work and explain in detail the very history each panel shows.
