Holkham Hall Estate
Muddy Says: Perfectly situated to explore the North Norfolk coast and with a great programme of activities on offer – Holkham Hall will keep you busy for at least a weekend.
I’ve spent a lot of time visiting Holkham over the years and I can honestly say it’s one of my favourite North Norfolk locations. What ever the time of year you visit, the estate always comes alive with a comprehensive programme of events and activities.
There’s the Field to Fork Experience with its very cool tractor simulator, cycle hire, boat hire, nature trails around the park and a brilliant children’s woodland adventure play area. All of this before you even hit the miles of beautiful beach!
Of course the magnificent 18th century hall and the six-acre walled garden are the piece-de-resistance. Home to great exhibitions and discovery trails, which can keep you busy for at least a day. I love the ‘Secret Passages Tour’ – all very Downton Abbey.
It’s worth checking out their programme of events as they have some great outdoor theatre and chamber music concerts in the Marble Hall. 2018 saw Lionel Ritchie take to the stage and I can’t wait to see who they line up for next year.
Winter the hall transforms with decorations and the Christmas Markets are a Muddy Must!
And of course not forgetting the Victoria Inn, perfect for a refreshing drink, meal or even over night stay – check out our Muddy Review!
