As the North Norfolk Coast begins to
move out of Covid-19 lockdown, and tourism businesses re-open,
more planned events are taking place. These are just listings,
so please follow links and check with organisers of events
before assuming events are running.
Accompanied by an expert guide, our behind-the-scenes tours exploring the hidden passages and the servants’ stairs of Holkham Hall take you right up to the highest tower rooms and attics.
You will even see what lies behind the beautiful ceiling of the Marble Hall and hear how it was made. Find out how the servants managed to flit between the grand State Rooms without being seen and how they serviced the State Bedchambers, where royalty once slept. Learn where Princess Victoria’s Ladies in Waiting were accommodated. See where the fantastic collection of manuscripts were once found, when Coke of Norfolk inherited the Hall. This is a rare opportunity to see parts of the Hall not normally on public display. Oh, and the views over the park from the Tower rooms are delightful.
Be aware! These tours are not for everybody. You will need to climb seventy stairs to the top of the house (and seventy stairs down again!) So, do wear sensible shoes.This is a tour of a working environment and some surfaces may not be clean - please don’t wear your best clothes. If you are arriving by car, a parking charge of £5 applies (redeemable against purchases of £30 or over in our gift shop). Dogs other than assistance dogs are not permitted on this tour. This event lasts for approximately 90 minutes.
Price: £25, including free-flow admission to the Walled Garden and Holkham Stories Experience on the same day.
