Deer Discovery Walk

Join a guided walk to learn some interesting facts about the herd of deer in Holkham Park. Discover how the behaviour of the beautiful fallow and majestic red deer changes with the seasons and how the management of the parkland, both past and present, has made it the wonderful sanctuary for wildlife that it is today.

The walks will be informal and suitable for all ages and there will be plenty of time for you to ask questions. Bring along your binoculars and cameras if you have them. Well-behaved dogs on leads are also welcome. We suggest you wear suitable footwear for walking in parkland and come prepared for all weathers.

See the spectacular arboretum with its many unusual and rare specimen trees resplendent at this time of year with their foliage in an array of autumnal tones.

Learn about the valuable work of the Gardens Department at Holkham and how they maintain the intricate patterns of the formal parterres on the terraces, designed by leading landscape gardener W.A Nesfield in the 19th century. 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.
