My mother was told about this place and as we were staying at the holiday park we went to the town hall and had a look. What a beautiful tapestry to look at. So long with so much history to it.

Interesting on so many levels, for history, lovers of Welsh, fighting, psychology. See the film about how the tapestry was made.

Brilliant. A witty, informative, amusing take-off of the one at Bayeux that tells of something few people know about. It's worth a special visit.

Lovely little exhibition of a virtually unknown episode in British history. Explained everything very well. The tapestry and the story of its making well worth a visit.

Displayed in the library and very well interpreted - lots of information on the story of the invasion, which I certainly didn't know about, and also how the tapestry was put together.
