Steeped in history, Holkham Hall on the North Norfolk coast has the perfect setting; surrounded by rolling parkland, rich in wildlife. This magnificent 18th century Palladian hall is home to the Earls of Leicester and the family takes great pride in sharing the house and its treasures with visitors. The state rooms offer superb collections of ancient statuary, original furniture, tapestries and paintings by Rubens, Van Dyck, Gaspar Poussin and Gainsborough.
Visit the Holkham Stories Experience and find out all about the estate’s 400-year past, living present and innovative future. Aimed at both adults and children alike, there’s plenty to keep you occupied. Dress up in a Holkham tweed jacket and bowler hat, let our ‘talking tools’ tell you what they were used for, sit back, relax and enjoy our ‘Holkham Year’ film. Learn how the very bricks used to build Holkham Hall were made here on the estate. Enjoy our interactive tabletop game as you learn all about how your food gets from the field to your fork!
Children will enjoy our Woodland Adventure Play Area, with its tree house, high level walkways, rope ladders and zip wire, plus a special area just for toddlers. On high days and holidays explore further with cycle hire or discover Holkham’s watery world with our choice of rowing boats, canoes and kayaks. Take to the trees with our high ropes course and see Holkham like never before!
Finish off your visit by treating yourself in our Courtyard Café, where we serve only the best, locally-sourced food and our gift shop, showcasing the work of local artisan suppliers.
Throughout the year we run a fantastic programme of events including outdoor theatre, open air cinema, tractor trailer rides, pond dipping, deer walks, specialist workshops, concerts and opera, nature reserve walks, talks and guided tours, special seasonal events during half terms, Easter, Halloween and Christmas.
