The original walled garden has been recreated to feature a formal rose garden with over 150 varieties, herbaceous borders, fruit and vegetables. The Model Soldier Museum is a unique collection of over 20,000 model soldiers. Spectacular battle scenes are depicted from the Battle of Waterloo to the Second World War. The Old Stables provide an excellent venue for the tea room and shop. Houghton Hall is situated just off the A148 King's Lynn to Cromer Road, about 10 miles east from King's Lynn.
