1st November 2017 – 9th December 2017

FREE entry for locals

FREE entry for locals. Up to two adults free entry on production of your utility bill with an LA postcode. As usual accompanied under 16’s, in a family group, automatically go FREE!

So often we never go and see what’s right on our doorstep. So here’s the perfect opportunity to visit the amazing Quaker Tapestry, for FREE!

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.

The 77 vibrant embroidered panels were made by 4,000 men, women and children from 15 countries between 1981 and 1996 (over 40 panels are on display here in Kendal).

Whilst visiting us you can also enjoy home cooked food in our cafe, take in the views of Kendal castle from our Quaker Botanists walled garden and admire the Grade II* listed Georgian Meeting House, which celebrated its 200th anniversary in 2016.

Please check our opening times before planning your visit.
