Details

Join a member of Holkham’s landscape team to enjoy a wonderful opportunity to view the private gardens at Holkham Hall, which are normally closed to the public.
See the spectacular arboretum with its many unusual and rare specimen trees resplendent at the height of summer. View the intricate patterns of the formal parterres on the terraces surrounding Holkham Hall, designed by leading landscape gardener W.A. Nesfield in the 19th century. His work can also be found at Kew Gardens.
There will be time to take in the idyllic atmosphere of the shell garden with its tree ferns and newly renovated shell house, the internal walls of which are beautifully decorated with an array of different shell patterns.
Booking is essential as these tours are popular. Each tour will last approximately one hour. Dogs are not permitted on the tours. Please wear suitable footwear for walking in parkland and come prepared for all weathers.
Tickets: Adult £9, Child £4.50. Pre-booking is advisable. To book telephone Holkham Ticket Office on 01328 713111.
