From Sunday 14th July 2019 11:00 to 16:00
A wonderful opportunity to join one of our knowledgeable gardeners in Spring, Summer or Autumn 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.
See the Magnolia and Tulip trees in the spring, the new foliage emerging on the acres and the carpet of bluebells in a variety of colours. In summer, 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. As the autumn months roll around, so too do the beautiful colours and tones of the season.
Spring date: 26th May 11am-12pm, 1pm-2pm, 3pm-4pm.
Summer date: 14th July 11am-12pm, 1pm-2pm, 3pm-4pm.
