Reasons for trip

At Holkham Hall you cannot beat the impressive entrance of the Marble Hall which is actually made of Staffordshire alabaster, with a lovely soft brown translucent colouring on the lofty pillars and stairs, and the magnificent ceiling similar to the Pantheon with a trompe l’oel effect. The effect is completed with Greek or Roman statues in the niches around the hall. As soon as you enter you have the chance to sit down and take it all in, plus you leave the same way so have plenty of opportunity to admire it.

You need to plan your visit to Holkham Hall as it is open on a Sun, Mon and Thurs midday to 4pm, and at £15 entrance, plus £3 to park good value for the day, as the Field to Fork Experience (recently updated and worth the visit regarding the farming innovations at Holkham) opens at 10am. There is also a lovely walled garden, café and a large park to walk in up to the obelisk or monument or Church so plenty to explore in the day. You can hire a bike to explore the park fully and taking in the beach – amazing amount of sandy beach to play on!

It remains a family home of the Earls of Leicester and is well worth a full day visit, or two if you wish to spend a day on the beach exploring.
