What’s on

Holkham Hall by Candlelight, a self-led visit

As seen on Channel 4’s ‘Christmas at Holkham’, the Hall’s state rooms are decked each year, making them truly magical, and it’s even better in person! Be amazed as you take it all in on this self-led tour this Christmastime.

This year, we are excited to feature brand new light installations from Luxmuralis, as seen on the Tower of London, Canterbury Cathedral and Winchester Cathedral (pictured).

Self-led tour dates will allow you to explore the rooms at your own pace, but don’t worry – our Hall Guides will be on hand to share inspiration behind each room and answer any questions.

Please check in at the Visitor Reception on arrival before heading over to the Hall for your Candlelight experience. Peruse the beautiful state rooms slowly, enjoying the stunning scenes and decorations and taking photos to inspire your own Christmas decorating! Enjoy a glass of prosecco and mince pie before visiting our gift shop.

Our shop will be open with gifts and Christmas decorations, and the Courtyard Café offers seasonal food and beverages.
