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.

Visit the Field to Fork Experience and discover the fun and interactive story of food and farming at Holkham without having to put your wellies on! Let our ‘talking tools’ tell you their use; test your foody knowledge with our table-top game; enjoy our ‘Holkham Year’ film and don a Holkham tweed jacket and bowler hat for a selfie.

Enjoy nature at its best and follow marked walks or, during high days and holidays, hire cycles to venture further. Explore Holkham’s watery world with rowing boat, canoe and kayak hire on Holkham Lake. A short walk to the other side of the lake is the impressive 18th century Walled Garden. See for yourself the work in progress, as we undergo a major project to restore the garden back to all its glory.

Families will love our children’s woodland adventure play area with its tree house in the sky, high level walkways and zip wire; great for all young adventurers.  Picnic in the park, or enjoy delicious produce from the café.

    Outlaw Half Triathlon at Holkham Hall

    Holkham will be hosting the Outlaw Half Holkham for a second year running. The swim, both transitions and the entire run will take place within the grounds of the estate. The swim takes place in the lake with a simple out and back course around a small island. The bike course will be a single loop taking in the coastal road as well as quiet country roads. For those that took part in 2016, there are a few diversions to enhance the competitor experience. The run will be three loops around the estate, passing and finishing in front of the hall, perfect for spectators who do not want to move much!

    There will be plenty of on-site camping organised specifically for competitors and their family and friends and, as camping is only permitted in Holkham twice a year, this is a fantastic opportunity.

    This will be a very high quality racing experience and an escape from everyday life.
