The Town is steeped in history with a great many historic attractions. It’s historic setting attracts a significant level of seasonal tourist trade.

The Conservation Area of Jedburgh covers much of the historic core including the Abbey and Castle Gaol. The Abbey was founded by David I in 1138 and was destroyed on the orders of Henry VIII of England. It is the most complete surviving Abbey in the Borders despite it having been burned in ‘nine times’. The Castle Gaol is situated at the highest point of the Town, built on the site of a medieval castle. It was once reputed to be the most important stronghold in the Borders. The prison retains the name, with the site always having been known as Jedburgh Castle.

There are good road links to the principal Border Towns and the National Roads Network via the A68 Trunk Road, which passes through the Town. Newcastle Airport is approximately fifty-two miles.
