Historic Holywood Walking Tour

The elegant seaside town of Holywood frequently gets mentioned as one of the best places to live in Northern Ireland by the likes of the Sunday Times but its first published reference dates back to A.D. 634 courtesy of the Venerable Bede! Holywood has seen a lot of history from monks and Vikings to the Normans and Scottish settlers. By C19th, it was home to wealthy industrialists fleeing the smoke of Belfast. On this 2 hour walking tour, you'll learn all about this fascinating little town and we'll finish up with a cuppa and cake in one of Holywood's excellent cafes.
