Uncover history, romance and intrigue at the UK's most famous wedding venue. Enjoy a guided tour of the museum and learn about some of the famous people who snubbed convention by marrying there. Examine letters, telegrams and even some marriage certificates of those from all walks of life who, over the years, defied relatives and friends to follow their hearts to Gretna Green.

There are letters from lonely singletons looking for a partner and telegraphs from frantic parents desperate to stop a wayward daughter. Discover the world's oldest Marriage Anvil and re-enact a traditional anvil wedding ceremony.

All this followed by a traditional Blacksmiths supper served in the courtyard conservatory.
