Gretna Green

The Gateway to Scotland hosts over 5000 weddings a year; but you don’t have to get hitched to enjoy all that this diverse region has to offer!

Cross the border from England into Scotland and you will be warmly welcomed by the communities of the Gretna area. Whether visiting Gretna specifically, perhaps with a wedding party in Gretna or Gretna Green, or venturing further afield to explore the natural beauty of Dumfries & Galloway and the rest of Scotland, the Gretna area is an excellent gateway to both region and country.

Gretna and Gretna Green are famous the world over for weddings and romance, and a visit here allows you to soak up the history of runaway marriages and witness some contemporary ones at the registrar’s office or local marriage rooms.

The Gretna area also has much more to offer. Ample hotel and guest house accommodation makes it an ideal base to explore Dumfries & Galloway for walking, cycling, fishing, wildfowling, golf, gardens, and naturally beautiful countryside.

The Gretna area and Dumfries & Galloway are rich in history and colourful characters, including the Border Reivers, Robert the Bruce, Robert Burns…Plus the fascinating story of Gretna Township and the munitions factories during the Great War.
