Last Invasion Tapestry

About Last Invasion Tapestry

Come and see what happened when the British mainland was invaded for the last time in February 1797. The story is told by the magnificent 30 metre award winning tapestry which was produced to mark the 1997 bicentenary of the event. Story boards and artefacts help recreate that day. The audio visual room shows the making of the tapestry.
