Norfolk is really the place to be at autumn time, amazing colours with powerful reds, yellows and golds, wonderful wildlife with deer roaming many woodland areas such as Holkham and lots of interesting events taking place.Also now as the main hustle and bustle of the summer season is over, our coastal areas are so much more tranquil so if you’re looking for somewhere peaceful and quiet to get away from it all then head our way!
For a wonderful example of Harvest head to Felbrigg Hall. The hall itself is a delight to visit anytime of the year and is described as one of the most elegant country houses in East Anglia. It boasts a fine gothic style library and a magnificent collection of grand tour paintings. The gardens never fail to delight with wonderful redwood trees in the west garden. It also has one of the few octagonal working dovecotes in the country, dating back to the early 1750s. Now from today 5th October 2013 until Wednesday 9th October 2013 you can see the hall decorated with flowers, fruit and vegetables from the walled garden located in the main grounds to celebrate The Harvest Festival.
Also on Wednesday 9th October from 2pm there will be a fruit tasting event happening with a number of unusual and different varieties to try.
