Holkham Estate, Holkham,
Take a walk back through time and peel away the layers of history in the cellars at Holkham Hall. Discover its Secret Heart. Visitors are treated to a wander through the warren of corridors and chambers serving the hub of the building. These areas are not normally on public view.
Begin the tour by hearing the history of the buildings to the east of the hall. Hear the story of The Lady Elizabeth wing – a former laundry and bowling alley, now a dedicated events venue. See where the army parked their lorries during World War II and hear how Holkham played its part, hosting the Royal Engineers. Hear about the slaughter house and original game larder. Once you reach the door to the cellars, you’ll discover how the hall was built (above ground from the basement up).
This tour also offers the chance to see the vast kitchen complex, old laundry rooms and how the building is heated.
