The Grand Tour: Tractor Trailer Tour

About

Let us welcome you aboard our tractor-trailer for a whistle-stop tour of the park. Unlike the eighteenth-century Grand Tours of Europe undertaken by young aristocracy, our grand tour will travel to important historical and architectural buildings and structures that have shaped Holkham's history. We'll pass the Great Barn, home of the famous sheep shearings and the Obelisk sitting in perfect symmetry to The Monument. Imagine you are looking out over the Tuscan hills as we travel past fields of gold in Holkham park. We'll tell you all about the crops we grow, the livestock we keep and the conservation work we undertake to preserve this unique landscape. There is so much to see and learn on a Grand Tour of Holkham.

The Details

Please be sure to dress for all weathers, the trailer is open-sided and exposed to the elements. If you are arriving by car, please be aware that a parking charge of £5 applies (redeemable against purchases of £30 or over in our gift shop). Small well-behaved dogs are permitted on the trailer but as it is a bumpy ride this is not encouraged. The tour lasts approximately 45 minutes.
