One of the most beautiful towns in the region, Holt is an admired destination for its holidaymakers and local residents due to its high number of independent stores of which the town is fiercely proud. Holt is a very popular destination for discerning home-owners and is a thriving metropolitan market town, notable for its abundance of Georgian buildings.
Holt is the seat of Gresham's School, a well known long-established public school founded in 1555 by Sir John Gresham, originally for boys only, it is now co-educational.
Holt also has a station on the preserved North Norfolk Railway, 'The Poppy Line', of which it is the south-western terminus.
The Holt office, located on the high street, has been an intrinsic part of the community for nearly 30 years and has presented some of the most prestigious homes in North Norfolk.
Look out for the clock on the beautifully crafted bus shelter, presented by Watsons to the town, with the name preserved on the clock face. When Holt Country Park was created, John Watson also gave 10 acres to the local authority for the princely sum of £1.00!
