Welcome to Knutsford Heritage Centre

Welcome to 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 three galleries over two buildings, 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.

The Heritage Centre proudly celebrated its 25th anniversary on 23rd September 2014 and this   special occasion was marked by burying a time capsule. The contents related to the achievements of the centre and life in Knutsford. Items were also included from the many local businesses and organisations which have supported the centre. A birthday party was held, with cake of course! All volunteers and specially-invited guests, including the Knutsford’s 150th Royal May Queen and Town Mayor, enjoyed the festivities. The capsule is buried in the garden and will be opened in September 2064.
