Gretna GreenGretna Green
Gretna Green lies on the Scottish side of the border between Scotland and England and is well known as the destination for runaway couples from the 18th century. Following the 1754 Marriage Act, which prevented anyone under the age of 21 from getting married in England and Wales without parental consent, elopers came to be married ‘over the anvil’ in Gretna Green’s Blacksmiths Shop, the first stop across the border in Scotland.
It remains a popular place to get married due to its history, with around 5,000 couples still tying the knot here every year! During our visit, discover the famous Blacksmiths Shop (don’t forget to touch the anvil for good luck in love!) and find out more at the History of Gretna Green and Anvil Weddings. You can also browse the range of Scottish gifts at the lovely shops and head to the Luxury Scottish Foodhall or the Blacksmiths Foodcourt to enjoy a taste of Scotland.
