You may have glimpsed the intricate terraces out of the window when visiting Holkham Hall, but did you know that there is a hidden private garden to the east of the hall with its own arboretum and even a grotto? Here is a chance to join one of our enthusiastic gardeners who will tell you all about the many unusual and rare specimen trees, show you the formal parterres on the terraces, provide an insight into ongoing works and gradual improvements and take you for a very rare visit to the delightful Shell House, one of Holkham’s hidden treasures. With insights into the history of these wonderful gardens, and the work needed to maintain their splendour, this tour will delight garden lovers and history afficionados alike.
