Introducing “Visit Galashiels”

After a wonderful day celebrating the return of the Flying Scotsman, we want to take this opportunity to share our most recent project; Visit Galashiels.

We are going to present all the fantastic things you can do in Gala, in one clear voice. We are working with the Galashiels Chamber of Trade to create a Shoppers Map, supported by the local Council. We will be promoting local events and festivals to wider audiences, in the hope that we can really start to capitalise on the value that the train line has added.

We live in a very special part of the world and this is our opportunity to showcase the best that Galashiels has to offer. Whether it’s businesses, charities, a new local band, community groups, or even a knitting club, we want to help everyone come together for the good of our town. We’ve demonstrated that we can put on an event through the Gala Fawkes night raising over £7,000, or today’s celebrations that filled our streets, shops and pubs; we have seen what can happen when our community comes together. will be live soon, but please sign up for our mailing list to find out more.
