Holkham Hall is a coastal treasure and offers a wonderful day out for the family. Steeped in history, the grand 18th century Palladian hall has the perfect location, surrounded by acres of rolling parkland and the nearby north Norfolk coast. Home to the Earls of Leicester and the Coke family, inside this magnificent family home there are treasures to be discovered in every room, with superb collections of ancient statuary, tapestries and paintings by Rubens, Van Dyck, Gaspar Poussin and Gainsborough.
