A celebration at Goldsmith’s Hall on 6th March celebrated the best heritage experiences and places to stay in the UK. The competition is arranged by Visit Heritage, the UK’s leading heritage, tourism and destination marketing company, who also publish Signpost, an independent hotel guide.
The Victoria at Holkham is delighted to announce that is has been crowned the winner of the ‘Wonderful Places to Stay’ category. Thirteen categories had winners including nine UK Heritage Awards and four hotel awards. Leading the panel of judges was Norman Hudson OBE, joined by Ken Robinson CBE, author and TV presenter Lucinda Lambton, architectural writer and author Jeremy Musson, Director of Visit Heritage Paul Bridle and more.
The judges’ principle comment was that “The Victoria at Holkham was still an example of an all-round wonderful place to stay. The Victoria Inn’s location couldn’t be better; less than a mile from England’s best beach, views over Holkham National Nature Reserve and with brilliant access to Holkham Hall. The 20 bedrooms are named after shooting drives on the Holkham Estate and beef and lamb from the estate, along with game from the shoot when in season, feature on the menu.”
