The Parrot Room

This room in Stranger’s Wing forms part of the principal guest accommodation area in one of the private wings of the Hall.

The room takes its name from the painting by Frans Snyders, of parrots and macaws, which hangs by the bed.

Guests of the Earl and Countess of Leicester often stay in this bedroom and it is therefore not always open to the public.

Jeremy Musson, the presenter of the BBC’s ‘Curious House Guest’ slept in this room while filming the programme on Holkham, which was broadcast in March 2006.
