The Village People – a walking tour of Holkham village

The Village People – a walking tour of Holkham village

It is all too easy to just pass through Holkham Village on the way to the beach or Holkham Park, but this traditional estate village is absolutely full of fascinating history, interesting buildings and wonderful stories of the people who’ve lived here over the centuries.

The Village People

On this gentle walking tour you’ll learn how what was originally a staithe became an important part of the history of Holkham Estate. We’ll discover architectural landmarks such as the 16th century Ancient House, the alms houses, reading room, infant school, neo-gothic north gates and the fabulous village pump. We’ll see how the village and landscape have evolved over time and share the many stories of the people that lived and worked there.

After the tour, we highly recommend spending time browsing the lovely shops in Holkham Village. As a special extra, the team at the Adnams store will be providing a wine tasting for those of us who wish to have a try.
