Temples, Turnips, Triumphs and a Tipple – Parkland Heritage Trailer Tour

Wednesdays 9th & 16th December
11am & 2pm

Tickets: £14, includes a glass of sherry and a mince pie en route.

Explore Holkham’s wonderful parkland, discover historical architectural landmarks and find out how the park has changed through time. Climb on board with our Chief Storyteller for a trundle around Holkham Park to discover the Triumphal Arch, see the evergreen oaks, visit ‘Longlands’ which has been redeveloped into the award-winning Holkham Studios, see the monument and the obelisk, the ice house and Coke of Norfolk’s great barn. The pinnacle of the tour will be a rare chance to go into the Temple*, tucked away in the woods where you can enjoy the story of this fascinating building whilst warming up with a festive tipple and a mince pie. No, we haven’t forgotten about the turnips - as for those you’ll have to wait and see!

(* on 9th December we will not visit the Temple due to another event taking place there, however we will go to the incredible Marble Hall instead).
