Located opposite Holkham Beach and National Nature Reserve, The Victoria is a dog friendly traditional inn with twenty bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms. The Victoria Inn is ideally situated just a few minutes’ walk from the golden sands of Holkham Beach and at the gates of my family’s Palladian ancestral home, Holkham Hall. It is perfectly placed for discovering the county’s windswept coastline, seaside towns and villages. It is arguable that our main attraction though is the food we serve in our restaurant.
