Uniformed Youth Groups at Holkham are all about about fun challenges and exciting adventures.


Uniformed Youth Groups

Holkham’s activity days are specifically designed for uniformed youth groups, offering 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 - a trip to Holkham is a must!

Activities on offer:

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

Grow your own
Spend a day in our walled garden discovering all about plants. You will learn 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.

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 along the way?

Back to basics
Learn all the skills needed to survive with only the bare essentials. By the end of this session our young explorers will be able to demonstrate how to safely prepare and light a campfire, plus how to prepare and cook food over an open flame. Den building, tracking, and other essential survival skills are also part of this activity day.

Nature Detectives
Embrace your surroundings and learn more about the natural world around you. With a variety of habitats to explore around the Holkham Estate, there are endless opportunities to become closer to nature. Our experts can help you identify different species of plants and animals, whilst learning the pressure places on wildlife.

Why not embark on a trail of discovery through the treetops on our ropes course, followed by a journey around the wider estate, on two wheels. In July and August, exploration on the water is also an option with boat hire on the lake. Round off your day with a team challenge to develop the skills to be a true adventurer.
*additional charges for ropes course, cycle and boat hire. Restrictions apply.
