Holkham Hall is one of England's finest examples of the Palladian revival style of architecture,

Holkham Hall is one of Britain's most majestic stately homes, situated in a deer park of 3,000 acres, on the beautiful north Norfolk coast. This classic 18th century palladian style mansion is a living treasure house of artistic and architectural history.

The Bygones Museum has an evocative collection of over 4,000 domestic and agricultural artefacts, with exhibits as diverse as Victorian money boxes and early traction engines. Really useful presents, including craftsman-made pottery, beautiful pictures and delicious food from the gift shops, art gallery and restaurant. Picnic in the park and watch the wildfowl on the lake. Boat trips available on open days. Miles of glorious golden sand on the lovely Holkham beach.
