​Join one of our knowledgeable gardeners and explore the private gardens at Holkham Hall, which are normally closed to the public. This exclusive tour will take you from the spectacular arboretum, with its rare specimen trees, to the intricate patterns of the formal parterres on the terraces surrounding the hall.

You’ll learn about the valuable work of the Gardens Department at Holkham and how they maintain the formal parterres, designed by leading landscape gardener, W.A. Nestfield in the 19th century, whose work can also be seen at Kew Gardens.
