Summer Tours of the Private Gardens

Sunday 16th July, 11am, 1pm & 3pm

Join one of our gardeners to enjoy a wonderful opportunity to view the private gardens surrounding Holkham Hall, which are normally closed to the public. See the spectacular arboretum with its many unusual and rare specimen trees resplendent at the height of summer.

Learn about the valuable work of the Gardens Department at Holkham and how they maintain the intricate patterns of the formal parterres on the terraces, designed by leading landscape gardener W.A Nesfield in the 19th century. Take in the idyllic atmosphere of the shell garden with its tree ferns and newly renovated shell house, the internal walls of which are beautifully decorated with an array of different shell patterns.
