A haven for independent shops and a hit with tourists, the town of Holt is beautifully compact and is well-known for its Georgian buildings and proximity to some of the best outdoor spaces in Norfolk. However, we still feel that as a place to visit in Norfolk, Holt is very underrated. For this reason, we wanted to write a guide about this town for 2023, with a breakdown of the best things to see and do there. Let's get into it:
Where is Holt?
We should start by specifying where Holt actually is - the town is about 22 miles north of Norwich and is within the North Norfolk council area. It's just under an hour from Holt to King's Lynn, a town we've written about previously. It's about a 10-minute drive from Holt to Salthouse Beach, which is part of what makes the town such a popular holiday destination.
