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. If you are looking for a perfect memento of your visit to Norfolk, then browse the many delights our Gift Shop has to offer.

At the north entrance to Holkham Park lies Holkham village, with the estate’s own inn, The Victoria, a selection of shops and the entrance to the Holkham beach and National Nature Reserve, renowned for its endless golden sands and panoramic vista.
