When the tide comes in, the beach is transformed into a harbour, with the entrance channel suddenly busy with visiting yachts, fishing boats setting out for the day or returning with their catch, local small boats going out to fish as well as clouds of small sailing boats racing or cruising within the harbour. The golden sands are backed by colourful beach huts which have been the subject of many a painting and postcard. The popular Beach Cafe nearby is perfect for refreshments during your visit. « less

Surrounded by acres of rolling parkland this magnificent Palladian building is a joy to discover, full of treasures in every room, from incredible architecture and stunning art, to original furniture and statuary. Visit the hall to see our new photographic exhibition for 2015 'Behind Closed Doors: A Year in the Life of a Working Estate'. For one year Viscount and Viscountess Coke gave the renowned, Magnum photographer Chris Steele-Perkins unrestricted access to their home and the estate. The result is a collection of stunning and intimate photographs that portray the reality of working and living on a working estate. This photographic exhibition portrays aspects of the estate that are rarely visible to visitors; a glimpse into a world that is both familiar and extraordinary, portraying how a young family, over 200 employees and 21 different businesses live and work together in one of England's most beautiful landscapes. To the west of the hall, our 18th century walled gardens are undergoing a restoration to sensitively restore them to their former glory. A great chance for you to see the amazing project in progress and to enjoy the tranquil atmosphere and mico-climate provided by the high surrounding walls. The park is 3000 acres in size and a sanctuary for wildlife. Our nature trail, signposted walks and bike hire are a great opportunity to see the flora and fauna and some of our landmarks of historical and architectural significance. Or why not relax on a leisurely lake cruise, hire canoes kayaks and rowing boats. Our woodland adventure play area, with a tree house, walkways,zip-wire, stepping stone bridge, crawl tunnel and amazing split-level tower. Toddlers will have fun too with our new area created for the younger adventurer. Why not extend your visit to enjoy one of our many events. Our varied programme offers delights such as chamber music and opera in the Marble Hall and open-air concerts in the park, to outdoor theatre in the courtyard and 2015 will see the return of the popular Holkham Country Fair in July.
