Join us for a day of activities inspired by the many portraits you can see at the Palace of Holyroodhouse.
How do we know about what people looked like- and what they wore- before photography was invented? Through the power of portraits, and the clothing we see on canvass! Find out what portraits can reveal to us through the poses, objects, and clothing shown; see replica clothing up close.
Pick up your Portraits at the Palace family trail and become an art detective and explore the Palace, discovering details and hidden histories in the portraits on display.
Make your own ruff fit for medieval royalty, then strike a right royal pose to create your own palace portrait in front of our pop-up ‘painting –booth’ photo frame!
