The Secret Garden: Holkham’s private gardens, terraces and arboretum


A wonderful opportunity to join one of our knowledgeable gardeners to view the private gardens at Holkham Hall, which are normally closed to the public. See how the gardens change throughout the seasons, from the spectacular arboretum with its many unusual and rare specimen trees to the intricate patterns of the formal parterres on the terraces surrounding the Hall.

Learn about the valuable work of the Gardens Department at Holkham and how they maintain the formal parterres, designed by leading landscape gardener, W.A Nestfield in the 19th century – whose work can also be seen at Kew Gardens.

Participants will also have access to the Shell House – although not currently in use, it is one of the hidden treasures of the estate, which is rarely shown to visitors.
