Ever wondered what exactly is behind that enormous nine-mile wall around Holkham Park? Always fancied a good nosy around, but never quite got around to finding the time and sensible footwear required? What if an expedition could be all organised for you, with a nice seat, a commentary full of juicy titbits and even a glass of Holkham’s very own wine and a tasty snack to make the day extra special?

If this is you, you’ll be delighted to hear about our Temples, Trees and Turnips trailer tours! Specially devised by our chief storyteller, hop on board our tractor trailer for a trundle all around Holkham park to discover incredible architectural landmarks and buildings and find out how the park has changed through time. You’ll get to hear the wonderful story of why on earth we have Italian evergreen oaks in Holkham Park; visit ‘Longlands’ which has been brought back into use as the award-winning Holkham Studios; get up close to the Monument and the Obelisk; see Coke of Norfolk’s Great Barn and hear stories of the massively influential events that have taken place there over the years.

Not only will you get a rare chance to peep through the door of the wonderful thatched ice house to see how things were refrigerated in days gone by, but also the Temple tucked away in the woods. You’ll be hard pushed to find a more beautiful and romantic spot than this, and we’ll make the most of it by stopping off for a delicious glass of wine (made from our very own vineyard in the Walled Garden) and a tasty snack while you get to look inside and hear the story of this fascinating building and its weird and wonderful uses through history. As for the turnips, you’ll have to wait and see! Just click on the button to book and start your Holkham Park adventure….

The Nitty Gritty

Please be sure to dress for all weathers, the trailer is open-sided and exposed to the elements. Small well-behaved dogs are permitted on the trailer but as it is a bumpy ride this is not encouraged. Facemasks must be worn on board the tractor-trailer. A drink and snack are included. We are sorry but this tour is not suitable for children under the age of 12.
