Holt’s rural coastal location, with its unique town centre and 18th-century Georgian buildings, makes it one of the most attractive towns to visit during your North Norfolk holiday.
Holt is one of the best towns to visit for shopping if you want something a little different and is home to many art galleries, antique and book shops and places to eat tucked away in hidden, charming courtyards and alleyways.
Holt’s Owl Trail is specifically designed to wander around the town following 24 information plaques. There are so many historic buildings and yards in the town, this is a great way to become more familiar with this very special North Norfolk town.
A short walk away is Holt Country Park, 100-acres of woodland with oak, pine and silver birch trees, picnic areas and nature trails with colour coded walks to suit everyone, including cyclists and dogs.
Just outside the town centre is the famous North Norfolk Railway’s Holt station where you can catch the Poppy Line steam train services to Weybourne and Sheringham. A bus runs from the station to Holt marketplace.
Also worth a visit is Letheringsett Watermill, just a short 5-minute drive from Holt and is Norfolk’s only working watermill, producing flour from locally grown wheat.
Each summer, Holt hosts its famous festival where it becomes home to street performers, musicians, poets, actors, dancers, artists and comedians.
