Holkham Hall

     


With a stunning location on the north Norfolk coast and at the heart of a thriving 25,000 acre estate, Holkham Hall is described as an exceptional place, rich in history, architecture and wildlife. The seat of the Earls of Leicester, this elegant 18th century mansion is still very much a lived-in family home which the family take pride in sharing with visitors.

The hall is an elegant 18th century Palladian style house, based on designs by William Kent and built by Thomas Coke, 1st Earl of Leicester. The Marble Hall is a spectacular introduction to this imposing building, with its 50ft pressed plaster dome ceiling and walls of English alabaster, not marble as its name implies. Stairs lead to magnificent state rooms displaying superb collections of ancient statuary, original furniture, tapestries and paintings by Rubens, Van Dyck, Claude, Gaspar Poussin and Gainsborough.

    Indulge in the "Burnham Market and Royal NW Norfolk Tour", to be held on Saturday 28th September.

    The Tour will commence with refreshments at "The Hoste" hotel overlooking the traditional village green in Burnham Market. Burnham, a pretty village just a couple of miles from the spectacular North Norfolk coastline, designated an area of outstanding natural beauty. 

    From here, we will take the coast road to the Sandringham Estate, passing through several attractive coastal villages and incorporating a cliff-top view over The Wash.

    On arrival at the Sandringham Estate we will take the "Scenic Drive" through Sandringham Woods before parking on "The Vista" beside the Visitor Centre, with its restaurant, shops and wood carving trail.

    A short drive will then lead us to the old Royal Station at Wolferton. After Queen Victoria bought the Sandringham Estate in 1862, the station at Wolferton became a Royal Station and regularly received Royal Family visitors.  Since its closure, the station has been in private hands, the current owner having undertaken a substantial refurbishment. The museum and all other station buildings will be open and parking alongside the platforms will provide a unique photo opportunity.

    The return to Burnham Market for lunch at The Hoste will take us along King's Avenue to the village of Anmer, past Anmer Hall, the home of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and then past Houghton Hall with its spectacular grounds and vistas.

    Lunch at the Hoste Inn will be buffet style. Following lunch you will be free to explore the excellent boutique shops in Burnham Market or to visit other local attractions.  

    Time: 09:30 at The Hoste Inn for tea, coffee and registration

    Cost: £25.00 per person

    Tours of this spectacular 18th Century family home are being offered to AMOC Members at a discounted price. The interior of the Palladian style Holkham Hall is opulent, but by the standards of the day, it would have been considered simple.  The Marble Hall (above) is made of pink Derbyshire alabaster, which leads to the piano nobile or the first floor and state rooms.  The most impressive of these rooms is the Saloon, which has walls lined with red velvet.

    Guests should please meet at the entrance to the Marble Hall at 10:20am.  The tour will commence at 10:30 and end at 12:00 mid-day.

    Cost: £11 per person
