  • We love holkham beach, it's well kept, plenty of parking space. And if you have a dog there are a good amount of poo bins there has been some added which is a bonus. Beautiful place I would highly rec...  more »
  • Holidaying up in Norfolk close by and visited this beautiful place. A short walk through the pine trees to the most beautiful view of Holkham Beach. So much room for everyone, dogs were allowed (visit...  more »
  • Good walking on beach and in woods. Good for bird watching. Car parking a little expensive compared with elsewhere- £3 for 2 hours, £5 for 4. It’s only £1 in Wells!  more »

  • This review is about the bird reserve, not the beach. A small reserve with a single path and two hides, really modest if compared with neighbouring Titchwell or Clay, but famous for good bird - I had two Spoonbills last time, for example. The beach might be good for seabirds but it is far too crowded when the weather is good. No visitor centre, but some facilities for beach goers and some more under construction. If you come for birds, don't get discouraged by the crowds at the car park - just take the path to the left into the woods and you'll get to reasonably quiet area.
  • An absolutly beautiful place. We went on a lovely warm and sunny day and it was just perfect. Plenty of places to walk around and enjoy the view and some great ice cream shops locally. A great day out for the family and I would thoroughly recommend.
  • I love this place. The sand is beautiful.. not stony like some other beaches. There is also a forest next to this.. goes on to and from the beach. The only thing I don't like is people allowing their dogs on when signs advise no dogs
  • Holkam beach is stunning. I really love it here. We have taken the dog for a few hours; there's nothing much in the way of entertainment; no pubs, cafe, etc. That suits me fine. We went during the winter time and there were very few people about,it was great. I haven't been during busier times but, judging by the size of the car park (paid), it looks like it is popular. Beach is close to the Victoria Pub. My favourite in Norfolk.
  • Just fantastic, as long as you don't mind a walk to the actual sea! Vast sandy beach, with dunes. Great for dogs and will keep your step count up!
