Norfolk Family Walk

Norfolk Family Walk
Holkham Hall Estate, Norfolk

Run by our Member Charity Astro Brain Tumour Fund, this annual walking event is growing in popularity year on year. Created to help raise funds for research and support, participants can choose which brain tumour charity they want to support - and of course that includes Brain Tumour Research.

Participants have four walking distances to choose from: 1, 3, 6 or 10 miles This gives options to suit all ages and abilities. If you plan to do the 10-mile walk, it is advisable to get to the start at around 10am to allow ample time to finish by 4pm. If you choose one of the shorter walks, it’s ok to arrive later.

All the walks are set in beautiful grounds of Holkham Hall, beside a lake and through woods where deer can be seen grazing. The trails are all flat; no hills to climb on any of the walks, and dogs on leads are welcome.

The 1-mile walk is aimed at children. This walk is suitable for prams and wheelchairs as it's all on a hard surface.

The 3-mile walk takes you around the picturesque lake where a great variety of wildfowl can be seen and is a favourite with families as there is so much to see!

The 10-mile walk also takes in the town of Wells-next-the-Sea with its lovely quay. Walkers can stop for a drink or enjoy traditional fish and chips, sitting on the wall and watching the world go by. After a walk on the bank path towards the sea, you will be walking alongside the pine trees which mark the start of your return journey to Holkham.

Entry Fee: £5 Payable to Astro Brain Tumour Fund on the day. Children walk for free.

There is ample parking on the estate – a £3 car park fee is charged which is redeemable at the shop. 

You can register to participate ahead of the event by using the form supplied by Astro Brain Tumour Fund.
