Get your Greek on at Holmwood. Come along for a weekend of family fun during the bicentenary of Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson. Join us for arts and crafts, children’s dressing up and an activity trail that’s all Greek to us.

Meet our tour guides and learn the history of Holmwood and architect Alexander Thomson. Follow our fun activity trail and create your own inspired designs. Try on a tunic and transport yourself back to ancient Greece with costumes from our dressing up box. Then, settle down for stories of Gods, Princesses and mythological creatures.
