Holkham Hall

Holkham Hall

Details

Holkham is a special place where a stunning coastal landscape meets one of England’s great agricultural estates. At the heart of this thriving 25,000 acre estate on the north Norfolk coast, stands Holkham Hall, an elegant 18th century Palladian style house, based on designs by William Kent and built by Thomas Coke, 1st Earl of Leicester. An interactive exhibition tells the stories of Holkham, and the walled garden is well worth a visit.

The house is surrounded by rolling parkland with opportunities to discover the wildlife and landscape with nature trails, a ropes course, cycle and boat hire on Holkham lake. Children can enjoy the exciting woodland adventure play area where there’s an amazing tree house, high level walkways, rope ladders and fun zip wire.
