Cycling

On two wheelsyou can see a great deal more.

The undulating Norfolk landscape, winding country lanes and windswept coastal paths make for great pedaling pursuits.

Holkham Park is on the Sustrans National Cycle Route 1 and is easily accessible from nearby towns and villages with bikes able to enter Holkham Park via the North, South, East and West gates. Once in Holkham Park, you’ll find a myriad of cycle routes to choose from, all with varying lengths and difficulty. With so much to see and do, cycling through Holkham Park gives you the opportunity to discover much more in just one visit than you would by foot.

Here at Holkham we are proud to be working with Good Journey to promote car-free travel. Those arriving by bike can enjoy a 30% discount off standard admission to our attractions. So, not only can you cycle between attractions, enjoying our discounted tickets, but you can also get off the beaten track and explore the fascinating architecture, wildlife, habitats, and landscapes throughout the wider park.
