Lovely cafe, good selection of food, we had wonderful sausage roll followed by coffee and cammomile tea before we visited Holkham Hall. Very pleasant and clean, we have been before and will go again.

Hi, that is Houghton Hall. We do currently have an in-house exhibition in the Hall 'Treasures and Trophies' which follows the journey of how the first Earl of Leicester came to build Holkham Hall.

There is no nursery, it is a walled garden which is laid out with specimen shrubs, vegetables and flowers. There is an entrance fee as the garden is part of our visitor attraction.
