Holkham Hall from the outside – a history and architecture walk

Holkham Hall from the Outside – a history and architecture walk

What tales can the outside of Holkham Hall tell us? Why Palladian? Is it symmetrical? What tricks with bricks and windows were used? Why four wings and how many floors are there really?

12_Holkham_Hall_From_the_Outside_A_History_And_Architecture_Walk

On this special walking tour led by Holkham’s historian and librarian, Dr Mac Graham, we have been granted special access to the private gardens to reveal all. We circumnavigate the hall’s exterior, examining grand elevations and looking into nooks and crannies not normally seen by the public.
