Local tourist attractions include Old Gala House and Abbotsford House, the former home of Sir Walter Scott, with its award-winning visitor centre as well as many other attractions in nearby Melrose and other Border towns. Among the independent shops in Galashiels there is also a cinema, a health centre, a swimming pool, gym, dentists, orthodontist and a new Transport Interchange built primarily around the new train station in conjunction with the Borders Railway which is a particular bonus. Local sports teams include Gala RFC, Gala Fairydean FC, and Gala CC and local festivals include the historic Common Ridings held in the summer which is of particular note.
There are also a variety of outdoor pursuits in the area that include fishing on the River Tweed, fieldsports, horse riding, golf, lawn bowling, mountain biking, and a selection of walks including the Southern Upland Way.
Clovenfords has a primary school, with secondary schooling at Galashiels Academy. The Borders College and Heriot Watt University also have a campus in Galashiels, and there are also a number of churches in the area. The Borders General Hospital, the largest hospital in the Scottish Borders is approximately seven miles away, on the fringes of Melrose.

The area is also served by the Borders Railway which recently opened and runs from Tweedbank to Edinburgh, with stops in Galashiels and Stow. There is also a busy bus service which runs from the Interchange in Galashiels, beside the railway, with links to Newcastle and Carlisle in the South, as well as Edinburgh and the other Border towns.
