The Courtyard Giftshop at Holkham

Christmas at Holkham

Christmas Shopping Evenings

Thursdays 14th, 21st and 28th November, 4pm-6.30pm

Why not join us for one of our Special Christmas Shopping Evenings? Soak up the wonderful atmosphere in the lead up to Christmas and shop for that perfect present. Holkham gift shop will once again be filled with glistening decorations, as used to decorate the hall, as well as scented candles, cards, puddings, chutneys, festive hampers, jewellery, clothing, our wide range of exclusive gifts and so much more!

Enjoy 10% off all purchases, and once you’re all shopped out, there’s a mulled wine and mince pie waiting for you in the Courtyard Café. Pupils from Easton College will be lending a hand gift wrapping your purchases, too.

On each of the evenings, a variety of our very own shop suppliers will be on hand with samples of their produce for you to try before you buy, including Archangel Distilleries with their gin - handcrafted in the heart of Norfolk; and Eastgate Larder - specialist grower and producer of Medlar Preserves.
