Holkham is a small village in the county of Norfolk on the coastline of central-eastern England, on the North Sea. It has a population of merely 235 inhabitants.

Originally inhabited by Celtic tribes, and later falling under Roman rule, the area became more densely populated around 450 AD during Anglo Saxon times. It was also mentioned as a town in the Domesday Book in 1086, though the exact date and circumstances surrounding its foundation are unclear.

Today, Holkham is known for its beautiful beaches, sunrises, and as the location of Holkham Hall.
