The beach at Holkham is one of the most unspoilt and beautiful stretches of sand in the country. Behind the shoreline lies a semi-circular basin, which, at very high tides, rapidly fills to form a spectacular shallow lagoon. The actress Gwyneth Paltrow walked across Holkham sand at low tide during the closing scenes of the film ‘Shakespeare in Love’.

Holkham National Nature Reserve, one of the largest in the country, is home to many rare species of flora and fauna. The Holkham Estate is one of a select few privately owned estates to have been awarded Approved Body Status under Section 35 of the Wildlife and Countryside Act which has, since July 2017, enabled it to manage its own land whilst the beach is managed by Natural England in partnership with Holkham.

Holkham beach was recently voted ‘Best Beach in the UK’ in a survey of travel writers.
