From frosty walks to a tractor trailer tour, there’s plenty to do at the Holkham Estate this Christmas.
A full and varied programme, brimming with events and workshops to suit all interests, will commence from November 28 at Holkham.
After a frosty year, children and adults alike are in need of some festive cheer, and Holkham’s dedicated team have worked hard to ensure guests will be warmly welcomed, despite the postponement of the much-loved Christmas Candlelight Tours and An Audience with Father Christmas until 2021.
Even though 2020 may not be the Christmas for large gatherings, it does mean it is a time perfect for more personal and private experiences in smaller numbers.
From wild walks on the nature reserve to tractor trailer tours (with a tipple included), Holkham has organised events to savour, all of which must be pre-booked.

All visitors will need to wear face coverings whilst in Holkham Hall and any other indoor spaces.
