Holkham Hall, Norfolk

Holkham Hall is a fine example of Palladian architecture conceived by Thomas Coke, the first Earl of Leicester.
Now lived in by the 8th Earl of Leicester and his family, it is very much a lived-in family home, however they take great pride in sharing the house and its treasures, the deer park and Holkham Beach, with visitors.
The grandeur of the state rooms and the beautiful location have made it a popular location for TV and film.
Holkham Hall is surrounded by 3,000 acres of scenic parkland, home to a large herd of deer and rich in wildlife.
Designated walks allow visitors to explore the 3,000-acres grounds and take a closer look at prominent landmarks, such as the monument to Coke of Norfolk and the obelisk. You will also find a nature trail, lake cruises, cycle and boat hire as well as a woodland adventure play area, with tree house, walkways and zip-wire.
The 18th century Walled Gardens are undergoing a project to restore them to their former glory and are fascinating to visit.
Events are held in the grounds regularly including open air concerts by well-known artists like Sir Elton John, Jools Holland and Status Quo.
Dogs are welcome but must be kept on a lead at all times, to avoid disturbing vulnerable wildlife.
During the visitor season, well behaved dogs are allowed in the shop, where you can purchase Holkham Hall dog treats; only assistance dogs are allowed in the hall. Dog waste bins can be found at various locations in the park.
The Holkham Hall estate includes, Holkham beach (across the road from Holkham Hall entrance), The Victoria Inn (on the main road between Holkham Hall and the beach); The Beach Café in Wells next the Sea and Pinewoods Holiday Park.
