What tales can the outside of Holkham Hall tell us? Why Palladian? Is it symmetrical? What tricks with bricks and windows were used? Why four wings and how many floors are there really? On this exciting new walking tour led by Holkham’s historian and librarian, Dr Mac Graham, we have been granted special access to the private gardens to reveal all. We circumnavigate the hall’s exterior, examining grand elevations and looking into nooks and crannies not normally seen by the public.

The Details

This tour is outside, so please dress for the weather and wear shoes suitable for parkland, gravel pathways and grass. Be aware that steps and uneven paths are involved. If you are arriving by car, a parking charge of £5 applies (redeemable against purchases of £30 or over in our gift shop). Dogs other than assistance dogs are not permitted on this tour. This event lasts for approximately 90 minutes.
