Holt is a lovely Georgian town to visit near Blakeney North Norfolk
The bustling Georgian town of Holt is lovely even in winter-although not usually as quiet as shown in these pictures below, taken following exceptionally heavy snowfall.
5 minutes from Blakeney
The lovely Georgian town of Holt is about 5 miles from Blakeney, and is ideal for a shopping trip and lunch in one of its many tearooms and restaurants. Holt has a lovely eclectic selection of gift shops, antiques shops, vintage shops, curio shops, clothes shops as well as a wonderful old fashioned department store Bakers and Larners whose fabulous food hall reminds me of a smaller version of Harrods.
Holt is famous as an Antique and Vintage shopping destination but there is also an excellent book shop, chemist, library, numerous estate agents, several charity shops, a supermarket, a 'paint a pot' shop and a wonderful newsagents called Starlings with a toy department that never fails to satisfy my youngest child
At Christmas Holt looks particularly festive, as the town centre is festooned with twinkly fairy lights. I cant think of many places | would rather do my Christmas shopping followed by afternoon tea in one of the many pretty tearooms.
