Join one of our landscape team to enjoy a wonderful opportunity to view the private gardens at Holkham Hall, which are normally closed to the public.
See the spectacular arboretum with its many unusual and rare specimen trees, the magnolia trees and the Tulip Tree resplendent at this time of year, the new foliage emerging on the acers and the carpet of bluebells in a variety of colours.
View the intricate patterns of the formal parterres on the terraces surrounding Holkham Hall, designed by leading landscape gardener W.A. Nesfield in the 19th century. His work can also be found at Kew Gardens.
There will be time to take in the idyllic atmosphere of the shell garden with its tree ferns and newly renovated shell house, the internal walls of which are beautifully decorated with an array of different shell patterns.
