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.
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.
The tour will take place mainly outside, whatever the weather. Please dress appropriately. As we may be going inside buildings, dogs other than assistance dogs are not permitted on this tour. If you are coming by car, please park in Holkham Village car park – the first two hours’ parking are free. The tour lasts approximately 90 minutes.
