Everyone is so helpful and willing to point out the new developments being undertaken in the park. The chain saw carving is unbelievable! Anyone interested in motor cycle racing must see the exhibits from the Hislop and Guthrie eras. The views are breathtaking in all seasons and is one of the best kept secrets of the Scottish Borders.

My husband comes from Hawick so for me it was great to see some of the towns history, there is lots to see & do for all ages plus the actual building itself is really beautiful & in a gorgeous setting. Well worth a visit.

This is set a short walk from the free car park and again is free entry. We came in October so the short walk in the park was breath taking with the Autumn colours. A real insight into Hawick Sporting past all motor cyclist and all cut down much to young, but a fantastic memorial. Also is the past of... More

We turned up to see an exhibition - paintings and objects by the Zyw artist family - when it was already closed (on a Saturday) but were nonetheless generously allowed in and given coffee and biscuits as well. Vaut le voyage, as the Michelin guides say.

Smashing museum in lovely Wilton Lodge Park. The house was home to influential families before the local authority bought it - and its grounds - for the people of Hawick. I was drawn to this attraction primarily because of its exhibitions celebrating the hugely successful careers of Hawick-born motorcycle racers Jimmie Guthrie (1897-1937) and Steve Hislop (1962-2003). They did not... More

The staff were really helpful, there is a gallery of art and when we were there an exhibition on fly fishing and art as well as fly tying. Two really informative exhibitions by local hero's world champion motor bike racers a generation apart and both of whom died too early. Lots to see and do for the children as well... More

Lovely gardens. Very pleasant stroll around the gardens. We arrived at the museum at 11.50 after walking round the park to be told it was closing for lunch 12 - 1.00, which was unfortunate. My only disappointment was no facilities. So we had to leave the park.

For a reasonably small Museum it is packed with artifacts of Hawick life and it's personalities, there is a room for Jimmie Guthrie and Steve Hislop, two greats of Motorcycling, Bill McLaren the voice of Rugby for so many years, a collection of fishing artefacts and so much more. A good way to spend a couple of hours. There is... More
