Holkham Estate


Bringing learning to life

Description

Our programmes are flexible to suit your requirements and learning objectives. Our experienced education team deliver hands-on sessions to your pupils, full of fun and engaging activities in an inspiring environment making a school visit to remember.

We really make the most of our environment with visits to the Beach, Holkham National Nature Reserve, Holkham Stories Experience, Walled Garden, Parkland and Hall itself all offered to schools. We've also teamed up with Norfolk Adventure who operate a ropes course & bike hire for the more adventurous KS2 and beyond.
