Welcome to Knutsford Heritage Centre

Knutsford Heritage Centre

Welcome to Knutsford Heritage Centre, set in the heart of the town in a reconstructed 17th century timber framed building on King Street.

There’s a lot to explore with two galleries, two beautifully maintained gardens and a well-stocked gift shop. We have an exciting changing exhibition programme, demonstrations, walks, talks and activities.

This is also the home of the Knutsford Millennium Tapestry. Set in three distinct panels, the remarkable tapestry is more than 13 metres long and was created by over 3,000 local residents to celebrate Knutsford in the millennium year.

Take a look at our calendar of events with something for everyone to enjoy. We look forward to welcoming you soon.
