He is the character that countless children have spent hours poring over picture books in a bid to find him.
But for a few hours in north Norfolk this afternoon, it was more a case of where wasn't Wally, as Holt's Stody Lodge opened its doors to hordes of stripily-dressed lookalikes.
Visitors dressed as the cartoon creation entered the Lodge's gardens for free and gathered for a group photo, butterfly trail, and games.

Kate MacNicol, owner of Stody Lodge Gardens, said: 'It was a fantastic day and we had a lovely turnout. The sun came out and we had lots of children running around.
