Getting here

You will find The Victoria on the corner of the A149 coast road and Park Road, using the postcode NR23 1RG. Turning onto Park Road, towards Holkham Park, the car park can be found on the right and is well-signposted.

If you are staying in Ancient House (rooms 11-20), we advise parking in the Ancient House car park. This is also accessed from the A149 coast road and is signposted ‘Holkham Village’. Turn into this area and you will find the exclusive parking for Ancient House guests. To check in, please make the short walk from this car park to The Victoria’s main building.

Parking info

Parking in The Victoria and Ancient House car parks is for hotel guests and diners only. It is free of charge.

Can I bring children with me?

Of course! We have a special children’s menu if you are dining with us, and several of our bedrooms are suitable for families. You can learn more about our rooms here by viewing our virtual tour or reading the room descriptions.

Can I bring my dog with me to the restaurant or hotel?

Yes you can. We are completely dog-friendly in the main Victoria building where you will find the restaurant and bedrooms 1-10. The Ancient House (rooms 11-20) is not dog-friendly.

We welcome dogs in the bedrooms within rooms 1-10 at an additional charge of £10 per dog per night.

Do you have parking at the hotel and restaurant for cars and bicycles?

We have car parking at The Victoria and at Ancient House which is exclusively for hotel guests and diners at our restaurant.

We have a dedicated shed for bicycles within the courtyard. Please ask at reception and we’ll show you where to park your bike.


Do you have EV charging?

We have four charging points here at The Victoria. Charging is available at a cost of 57p per KW.

There is also EV charging available at Holkham Park and Lady Anne’s Drive.

Is there public transport?

There is indeed. We’re fortunate to be just 100m (around a one minute walk!) from bus stops for buses travelling in both directions. The 36 Coastliner stops here between Kings Lynn and Fakenham, stopping in Wells-next-the-Sea, Burnham Market, Walsingham and several other lovely Norfolk villages. There are easy connections to help you access the best the county has to offer.

Can we just come for a drink?

No – we are a restaurant and hotel. Guests staying with us can use our rooms and outdoor spaces to enjoy drinks, but otherwise, we are only open to those wishing to dine at The Victoria’s restaurant. We would strongly advise booking ahead for your meal.
