VisitScotland , the national tourism agency for Scotland, offers a wide range of information and detail on Hawick via the Tourist Board web site.  

Frequent winner of national floral awards, Hawick is the largest of the Border towns and internationally famous for fine quality knitwear.
 
Hawick is part of the Cashmere Trail and the major centre for the industry in the Scottish Borders . The town therefore has many shops with a large selection of knitwear and cashmere as well as fine Scottish products.
 
The town has a long and colourful history that can be traced back at least as far as the 12th century, when a Norman family, the Lovels, had land granted to them in and around Hawick by King David I. The imposing Hawick Museum and Scott Gallery reflect the town's history and provide a venue for visiting exhibitions.

Drumlanrig's Tower, opened in 1995, is a romantic monument with a dark history, woven into the fabric of Hawick. 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 1930s. The Tower also incorporates the Information Centre.  

The pride and passion of the town is also shown on the rugby field where the local men take on the rest of the region as local followers faithfully support each weekend at the Mansfield Rugby Park. Other events, held in summer, include the Summer Festival, Jazz Festival and the new Reiver Festival which celebrates the turbulent past and culture born from the Border Reiver era.
