Relax and enjoy some welcome refreshments from the Stables Cafe. The Cafe is located in the courtyard adjacent to Holkham Hall in a building which was once used to house the huge machinery for generating the Hall's electricity supply (until mains electricity was installed in the 1930s).
All of our food is homemade with local produce, or by local suppliers, using the best ingredients Norfolk can provide. Select from a variety of tasty, hot and cold dishes, snacks and sandwiches for lunch, or indulge in a slice of mouth-watering gateau for afternoon tea.
Why not try our delicious, homemade Holkham Ice Cream, which is produced on the estate. Choose one of the new, tempting seasonal varieties, such as lavender, fig and blackcurrant, or one of the more traditional flavours of chocolate, vanilla or strawberry.

Holkham National Nature Reserve
On a coastline famous for nature reserves, Holkham is the most extensive, diverse and dramatic of these. Windswept tidelines, a maze of creeks and saltings, miles of dunes and sandpits, shady pinewoods, green pastures and marshes: the mix of habitats and the blend of wildlife unite Holkham's National Nature Reserve- a unique place, somewhere to catch your breath in a busy world.
There is much to see at Holkham Hall including a tour of the Hall itself, a walk or cycle ride round the extensive park land, a cruise on the lake (in the summer months), the Bygones Museum with its exhibition of domestic and agricultural memorabilia, allows visitors to relive memories, or learn about life in times gone by.
