Planning a three-day wedding? Here’s where you and your guests should stay in and around Holkham.
Once upon a time weddings were a simple affair; the bride and groom said their vows, guests threw confetti, tea and sandwiches were served and off they went on their honeymoon with tin cans trailing behind their car. But this is 2019. Things change. Wedding trends change. And now the norm is the three-day wedding extravaganza, or wed-fest as some like to call it.

Of all our winter wildfowl that descend here every year it is the White-fronted Goose that traditionally attracts most attention from visiting birdwatchers. This smaller relative of the common feral Greylag Goose appears annually in Norfolk at only a handful of regular sites and the marshes of Holkham have long been famed for attracting a flock.

The late autumn and early part of the winter has been mild and dry at Holkham which has consequently meant that numbers of wintering ducks on the marshes have been quite low. There has however been much interest from visiting birdwatchers due to three special species of songbird which have arrived on the reserve in recent weeks. They all have one thing very much in common; they all come from extremely cold breeding grounds in the northern extremities of the World. The most popular attraction for visitors and locals alike has been the appearance of a group of Shore Larks on the beach and developing saltmarsh between Holkham and Wells.
