Brownie badge days at Holkham



Brownie Badge Days

We are pleased to announce the launch of our brand new programme for Girlguiding. Holkham’s Badge Days are specifically designed for Brownies; they offer units the chance to visit Holkham and have fun with friends whilst learning new skills. With our stunning rural location in north Norfolk, including parkland and woodland, a 6-acre walled garden and an abundance of wildlife - maybe even a Brown Owl - a trip to Holkham is a must!

Our badge days are specifically designed to meet the criteria of the brownie badge 2018 release.

The three badges we can offer are ‘Local history’, ‘Grow your own’ and ‘Explore stage 2’.

Local history

Hop on board our tractor trailer tour to explore Holkham Park and its unique landmarks as well as being home to our resident herd of Fallow deer. Learn all about our gamekeepers and take part in a gamekeeping-inspired craft activity. Then visit our Field to Fork Experience to find out about the life of Thomas William Coke, also known as ‘Coke of Norfolk’.

Free time on our Woodland Adventure Play Area

Grow your own

Spend a day in our walled garden discovering all you need to know about plants. You will learn all about plant growing requirements, identifying common species as well as potting your own plant to take home. Get imaginative and design your dream garden, we will give you a helping hand to get your design started.

Free time on our Woodland Adventure Play Area.

Explore Stage 2

Join in with games and quizzes to learn how to stay safe and comfortable when out and about. Create a compass and grab a map to explore Holkham Park, why not have a picnic on the way?
