Attraction Information

Holkham Hall is a coastal treasure and wonderful day out for the family. Come along and channel your inner farmer or try spot the local deer on the wildlife trails!
Discover the Holkham Stories exhibition, who knew farming could be so much fun? There’s plenty of interaction to keep children amused while learning where food comes from, maybe even take a funny family selfie in a Holkham tweed jacket and bowler hat! The Discovery Trail quiz makes history super fun, definitely not to be missed. 
Follow the trails to explore the scenic parkland and maybe even hire cycles for the whole family to explore. Then go paddle around Holkham Lake on a canoe or kayak providing all the thrills and spills you could ever need. Children will enjoy the Woodland Adventure Play Area, play in the tree house, high-level walkways and zip wire, with a special area just for toddlers.

Absolutely beautiful place to visit 5 out of 5 stars

Lovely place for a family day out. You can pay £3 to park and use the adventure playground and explore the grounds which is great value. You just pay extra if you want to go in the house. Play area is fantastic for all ages. The grounds are extensive. We hired bikes to go exploring. Cafe does good food although a little pricey. The Christmas Candlelight tours are definitely worth a visit-for adults.
