Holkham remains one of North Norfolk’s most popular attractions, and there are plenty of reasons to enjoy this wonderful estate this Easter.
This year’s Easter calendar at Holkham is packed with plenty of fun activities and exciting events for all the family to enjoy from 2-19 April.
During Easter weekend Holkham will be hosting the Easter Food, Drink & Gift Market in the Lady Elizabeth Wing. It is the perfect opportunity to spend time with your family and friends and pick up something tempting and tasty to enjoy over the bank holiday period from local and regional artisan producers showcasing their best produce, gifts and crafts.
At Holkham Hall, families can enjoy spring-inspired stories with Paul Jackson in the Saloon or get crafty in the Old Kitchen. With the popular Holkham stories exhibition being open daily, this Easter children can also improve their flower power with Holkham’s Flowers and Foliage quiz, focusing on spring-time blooms and looking out for the Eggscapees by searching for and finding Holkham’s escaped baby chicks.
In the Walled Garden, kids can get stuck into cracking crafts in the Ed Shed, including adding to Holkham’s mosaic mural masterpiece and creating a compostable plant pot to take home and practice their detective skills in their Clued Up Easter Hunt, where children can crack clues and win a chocolate treat! You also won’t want to miss Charlie Cheesecake and his marvellous and magnificent magic show, taking place in the ‘Big Top’ in the Walled Garden at selected times over the Easter weekend, Friday 15 April to Monday 18 April inclusive.
Around Holkham Park, there is the opportunity to find Holkham’s hidden hut for the perfect photo opportunity, follow the nature trail to discover more about the plants and animals at Holkham or let off steam in the Woodland Play Area. Families are welcome to hire bikes and explore the wider estate or conquer wobbly crossings and swinging bridges on the Ropes Course. Also available is the tractor-trailer for The Grand Tour, a 45-minute trip around Holkham Park.
