A Christie Christmas
Greenway House was the holiday home of Agatha Christie, and all the family would gather here to celebrate the season. They would trim the rooms with traditional decorations and play family Christmas games. This time of year was also usually when Agatha would release a new novel, and her devoted fans would always make sure to purchase one, prompting the phrase 'a Christie for Christmas'.
Can you help Percy the Park Keeper?
On weekends from 4-19 December 2021, and daily between 27-31 December 2021
Based on the beloved books from writer and illustrator Nick Butterworth comes a festive outdoor trail with Percy The Park Keeper. There's lots of work to be done in the garden at wintertime, and Percy's needs some help. So why not step into his wellies and become his helper for the day? Armed with clues and help from his woodland friends, there's tons of fun to be had as you get closer to nature on this outdoor trail.
Trail price £2, booking not needed.
Winter is the perfect time to explore the garden at Greenway. The trees have shed their leaves, and so the views over the Dart estuary are opened up. Why not lace up your boots for a family ramble down the paths to the Boathouse foreshore, where you might be able to spot some winter wildlife on the river?
