Offsite Sessions

Set within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Holt Hall is the ideal location for visiting the North Norfolk coast or river Glaven.

Coast Defenders

We can visit Overstrand or West Runton Beach to look at evidence of coastal defences and explore different coastal processes.

River Explorers

Investigate the changes in the River Glaven from source to sea. We visit different locations along the river and collect data at each site to find out first hand how this river changes from source to sea?

Please note: River Explorers day visit runs from 10am to 3/4pm. Please advise on booking if you need to depart earlier.


We visit West Runton, explore the rock pools and discuss adaptation. How do animals and plants survive the wind, salt, water, waves, sun, predators and erosion? What secrets do rocky shore organisms have that help them live in this ever changing environment?

Rockyshore and Fossils

Similar to the rockpool session but with the chance to stop and look at the Cromer Freshwater bed and think about how the fossils found in the bed link give clues about the landscape in the past.
