Frequent winner of national floral awards, Hawick is the largest of the Border towns and internationally famous for the fashioning of fine quality knitwear. You will find big names and small concerns whose products can be bought in the many specialist shops, whilst textile production can be viewed at Peter Scott's and Wrights of Trowmill. The exciting attraction Drumlanrigs Tower; opened in Hawick in 1995. A romantic monument with a dark history, woven into the fabric of Hawick, and a stronghold of cross-border warfare, its intriguing story unfolds as visitors are led through time from the middle ages to the Tower's eventual conversion into a gracious hotel in the 1930's. The Tower also incorporates the tourist information centre.

Award winning Wilton Lodge Park on River Teviot's wooded banks extends to over 107 acres, with riverside and tree lined walks, picnic tables, recreational facilities and a walled garden with special feature flora displays and easy wheelchair access. A statue commemorates the life of Jimmy Guthrie, ace TT rider and world champion of the 1930's. The imposing Hawick Museum and Scott Gallery reflect the town's history and provide a venue for visiting exhibitions. St Mary's Church was dedicated in 1214 and rebuilt in 1763, whilst the Mote or Moat is a huge mound which visitors can climb to enjoy the wide vista from the top.

Visitors to the town can enjoy free parking; local publications include a Town Plan, mini-guide and countryside walks. One of the oldest Border Common Ridings is held in early June and commemorates an event in 1514 when Hawick lads defeated a body of English soldiers capturing their banner.
