We love Houghton Hall. Third trip and first time in Spring. The Damien Hirst exhibition divided us - the kids enjoyed the floating eyeballs and I liked the spots. I thought they might get lost in the full on historical decor but actually thought that they added a levity to the rooms they were in.
The walled gardens were immaculate - the girls had previously loved the croquet lawn but there was now there. They are the gardens of my dreams!
The play ground and picnic area went down as well as usual but they really needed a bin in this area.
My highlight is always the sky space art/ house. So calming and reflective.
I always like the fact that the house and gardens aren’t massively overly touristy. It feels small scale and therefore kind of personal. For me this is a piece of norfolk perfection.
