Annual Norfolk Family Walk at Holkham Hall for Brain Tumour Research & Support

astro brain tumour fund

We look forward to welcoming new walkers as well as our faithful supporters who turn out year after year for this uplifting event.

This walk, which is growing in popularity year by year,  is in aid of brain tumour research and support and has a choice of distances – one, three, six or ten miles – to suit all ages and abilities. All are through the beautiful parkland, beside the lake and through the woods where deer can be seen grazing.   There are no hills to climb on any of the walks and dogs on leads are welcome.

The one mile walk is aimed at children and has games at the halfway mark. This walk is suitable for prams and wheelchairs. The three mile walk takes you around the beautiful lake where a great variety of wildfowl can be seen. 

The ten mile walk also takes in the seaside town of Wells-next-the-Sea with its quaint shops and lovely quay where you can stop for a drink or partake in the traditional enjoyment of fish and chips sitting on the wall and watching the world go by (if you’re not it too much of a hurry of course!)  After a walk on the bank path towards the sea, you will find a café to enjoy an ice cream or coffee to refresh you before walking alongside the pine trees which mark the start of your return journey to Holkham (there are toilets here too).

If you are planning to do the ten mile walk, it is advisable to get to the start around 10am to allow ample time to finish by 4pm.  If you are doing one of the shorter walks, it’s ok to arrive later.

Once the registration fee has been paid (children free), walkers are then free to support the brain tumour charity of their choice.  You can download a registration formto save a little time on the day, or you can do it when on arrival.

If you have any non-walkers in your party, they will find there is plenty to amuse them while you’re doing the walk, including the house (open for viewing on Sundays), museum, walled gardens, shop and a free woodland play area. Click here for more details on what the estate has to offer
