We’re delighted that Houghton Hall plays host to one of Antony Gormley’s most spectacular large-scale installations this year. “Time Horizon” opened on 21st April and runs to 31st October. This spectacular exhibition features 100 life-size cast-iron sculptures which are installed at the same datum level to create a single horizontal plane across 300 acres of the park. Some sculptures are buried, with only a part of the head visible, while others are buried to the chest or knees according to the topography.  Only occasionally do they stand on the surface with a quarter placed on concrete columns above ground.

As you peruse the sculptures, you’ll wander through the Hall’s extensive parkland, with its herd of white fallow deer. A visit to the stunning walled garden and fascinating Model Soldier Museum is a must, with a stopover at the café and gift shop a perfect way to round off the day.

If you’d like to make a short break of it, we’re a scenic 15 minute drive from Houghton Hall. We offer stays of 3, 4 or 7 nights in our two beautifully appointed cottages with everything you need for a home-from-home getaway, and we’re super dog-friendly too.  You’ll find full details including prices and availability via the link here, but if you have any questions or specific needs then don’t hesitate to get in touch and we’ll do our best to help.  We hope we can tempt you with a stay here at West Heath Barn  – you’ll find wonderful peace and tranquillity but in close proximity to the very best that North Norfolk has to offer.
