Nestled on the north Norfolk coast, the estate consists of 25,000 acres of land, an 18th century Palladian Hall and of course the famous Holkham beach which provides some of the Norfolk's biggest skies and 
has been used as a filming location for both TV series and Hollywood films.

But away from the panoramic views, the Holkham estate is a hive of activity providing hundreds of people with employment and providing a home to the to the Earl and Countess of Leicester and their four children.

Here we look at photographs of the country park, which show there is far more to the Holkham Estate than its breathtaking views and stunning scenery.
