Holkham Hall

room 9 ECHOES

Wells-Next-The-Sea

Thomas Coke, the first Earl of Leicester, conceived this Palladian Hall as his vision of an Italian villa on the windswept north Norfolk coast. The family has lived in this house continuously since the 1750s, though at Holkham since 1612. They take great pride and joy in sharing the house and its treasures, the deer park and Holkham beach, with visitors.

Holkham is still privately owned and is the centre of a thriving 25,000 acre agricultural estate which provides resources both to maintain the house, and to ensure that the social fabric of rural life remains intact. However, Holkham has not stood still and has worked hard to move with the times. In recent years, enterprises have expanded to include a holiday park, several shops, property development and an internationally acclaimed inn.
