Wander around the historic Norfolk town of Holt and you will soon feel all your cares slip away. Rebuilt after a devastating fire in 1708, Holt has a wonderful character with colourful Georgian buildings and a modest parish church that is open to visitors. There are plenty of unusual shops, a spacious market place and the town is surrounded by wooded parks. A jumble of streets and alleyways descend from the main High Street, where you can find pubs, cafes, galleries, and shops to enjoy. There is a splendid country park just to the south of Holt and the North Norfolk Railway (The Poppy Line) runs from Holt station to Sheringham.




Holt is particularly attractive at Christmas, when all the shops are covered in pretty white fairy lights, making for a really festive wonderland. Another of Norfolk’s top attractions can be found just a short distance away - Letheringsett Mill - Norfolk’s only flour producing watermill. Built in 1802, visitors can see working demonstrations of this incredible machine, enjoy guided tours and browse the Mill Shop.
