Holkham Hall has come out tops in two categories of the prestigious 2017 Hudson’s Heritage Awards announced this week.

The awards recognise the best heritage attractions in the whole of the UK.

The North Norfolk stately home was chosen as winner of the categories for Best Family Day Out and Best Shopping. The awards were presented by Penelope, Viscountess Cobham, chairman of VisitEngland, at Goldsmiths Hall in London.

Last year at Holkham new visitor facilities were revealed after a £4.5 million transformation of the former stables and pottery buildings.

And also new for 2016 was a gift and souvenir shop showcasing the work of local artisan suppliers and producers.
