Local tourist attractions include Melrose Abbey, Harmony House, Priorwood Gardens and Abbotsford House, the former home of Sir Walter Scott, and The Greenyards rugby football grounds, renowned worldwide as the origin of Rugby Sevens. There is a variety of outdoor pursuits in the area including fishing on the River Tweed, rough and syndicated shooting, horse riding, a challenging 9 hole golf course and a selection of walks including the Southern Upland way.

The Borders General Hospital lies just outside the town and nearby Tweedbank, minutes to the west of Melrose, will benefit from a station on the new Borders Railway which is due to open in the autumn 2015 providing a service into central Edinburgh with approximately an hour's journey time. Berwick Upon Tweed (approx. 40 miles) provides a major rail link for travel to the south and airports can be found in Edinburgh, Glasgow or Newcastle.
