Written by: Georgia Dawson

The iconic Holkham Estate is a truly beautiful destination - a heritage, cultural, farming and natural paradise on the north Norfolk coast - enjoyed by residents, visitors and royalty since 1609. The breath-taking Holkham Hall sits proudly with far-reaching views over the 25,000-acre estate and is one of region’s finest and most recognisable Palladian country houses. Throughout the year, the hall is home to a variety of discerning cultural offerings, from wonderful art exhibitions and impressive live theatre, to unmissable concerts in the Marble Hall and festive candlelit tours. In addition to this, the hall is open from April to October, as well as year-round for the most magical of weddings and ceremonies.
