The Lookout

Sit back with a cuppaas you take in the views.

Situated on the edge of the Holkham National Nature Reserve, the Lookout offers spectacular views and a range of food and drinks to enjoy inside, outside or to take away.

You’ll find this unique building at the top of Lady Anne’s Drive, blending discreetly into the surroundings. Interpretation about the wildlife and habitats on the reserve sits inside, with binoculars and bird guides to make the most of the outside panoramas.

We’re prioritising the environment. The Lookout is committed to reducing waste, and we aim to be free of single-use plastic. Any required packaging is 100% plant-based and compostable, so please dispose of it correctly. We serve filter coffee made with locally roasted beans, hot chocolate and both traditional and specialty teas. You’ll receive 10% off your drinks if you bring a reusable cup, so you can help save both the pennies and the planet at the same time!

Delicious cakes, sausage rolls, sandwiches, soup and fruit are also on the menu.

What a great place to while away the time, watching the environment around you, with a cuppa and a piece of cake. The building itself is fascinating.

Stunning day capped off by a relaxing tea in this perfect cafe. Lots of simple lunch items all made that day and welcoming staff eager to chat to our little one. They have bird guides and binoculars to use. Lots of indoor and outdoor seating.
