About Holmwood House
James Couper, a local paper manufacturer commissioned the building of Holmwood House in 1857. By 1858 it was complete, designed by Alexander 'Greek' Thomson and widely thought to be his finest domestic work.
 
Richly ornamented with neo-classical motifs and acres of surrounding greenery, the house is a symbol of how mercantile wealth grew to compete with aristocratic inheritance during this fascinating period in history.
 
About the area
Glasgow is a vibrant cultural hub, home to world-class art exhibitions, pioneering theatre practitioners and Scotland's national ballet company.
 
Holmwood is ten minutes away from Glasgow city centre by train, with a walk of ten minutes to the station.
 
Things to do

  • Cook up a storm with fresh vegetables purchased from Holmwood's own vegetable garden.

  • Spend a night at the theatre. The Citizens Theatre offers traditionally staged plays, the Arches has great atmosphere and an avant garde programme, while the Tramway is a fantastic contemporary space created from an old tram shed.

  • Visit the Tenement House to see a different side of Glasgow life, from the early 20th century. This four room house was lived in by independent woman, Miss Agnes Toward for over 50 years.
