The Famous Blacksmiths Shop is the ancient building that made Gretna Green famous. The building has stood in Gretna Green since 1713 and was the earliest destination for runaway couples fleeing to marry in Gretna Green since 1754. This original room accommodates up to 45 guests.

The original marriage room, a true historic wedding venue in Gretna Green, is as it was in the 1700s. We now have a newly refurbished Forge Marriage Room, decorated with original artefacts to give a true Gretna Green feel which accommodates up to 50 guests.
