2015 will see an exciting new major development project at Holkham. At the heart of this activity is the redevelopment of the courtyard, which will result in a much improved welcome for visitors for 2016 with a new café and restaurant, larger gift shop and a new exhibition telling the story of Holkham's unique farming heritage. The former pottery building in the courtyard will also become a stylish venue for weddings, conferences and events. During this transformation the ticket office and shop will have a temporary home in the park, and the cafe will be relocated to a beautiful setting near the hall, overlooking the lake and the cricket pitch. Please note that the Bygones Museum has now closed.
