Duke of Kent visits Holt Hall

30th March, 2017

The Queen’s first cousin arrived by helicopter at Holt Hall on the morning of Thursday, March 30, and spent about 40 minutes talking to staff, children and volunteers.

The centre is run by Educator Solutions whose head of outdoor centres, Mike Roper, said the Duke thoroughly enjoyed himself.

He said: “We were talking about what a fantastic opportunity it is for the children to explore the space here. He was very interested in the history of the centre and it being a Victorian building and that we grew a lot in the garden which is used in the kitchen.” During his visit, he toured the grounds and historic hall, including the woodlands, Victorian-walled garden and rear lawns, meeting staff members and centre visitors.

He was waved goodbye by youngsters from Holt Primary School who are learning new skills and enjoying themselves at the environmental and outdoor learning centre, in Kelling Road, on the edge of the town.

Holt Hall is set in 75 acres of ancient woodland, lawns, lakes and gardens close to the north Norfolk coast. It provides high quality residential and day visit experiences in north Norfolk for schools, colleges and universities from around the UK.
