Blickling Estate, Blickling

4.6
Discover Blickling Estate, once the home of the Boleyn family and voted the most haunted house in Britain in a National Trust survey in 2007. Explore the house, inspect the book collection, and hear the real voices of the servants who once worked there. Take in the moat, ancient yew hedges, garden ornaments, topiary, and kitchen garden. Walk, rent a bike, or ride a Segway around the parkland. Watch croquet, admire the shell fountain, find the secret garden, and relax with a picnic. Stop for a pint at the Buckinghamshire Arms and browse the largest collection of secondhand books in the National Trust before departing.

    We visited Blickling during the weekend of the outside concerts to take our dog for a stroll. We paid our £5 parking fee, and then discovered there was really nowhere that dogs were allowed as the Lak...  more »

  • Beautiful estate, definitely worth the visit. The house of beautiful and the staff inside are very friendly and knowledgeable. The gardens are stunning and perfect for spending the day walking around and exploring secret spots. The walking trails to the mausoleum and tower aren't very well marked, however the grounds are lovely to walk around until you find yourself back on the right path.
  • Lovely day out for Easter, with an Easter egg hunt for the little one. Excellent grounds, and nice staff. Also the cafe did really nice food. Could have done with a few more directions for how to start the Easter trail. There appeared to be several places where you could pay and it wasn't clear if you needed to pay for different things in different places. Overall, a great day out though :)
  • Fabulous grounds and the park is wonderful to walk in all year round. Good cafe when it isn't busy, but can't cope when the crowds descend.
  • A really grand impressive house and estate , from the initial imposing driveway approach, to the large stately rooms and the formal gardens ... a quick one hour visit will not be enough
  • Amazing peaceful place to be. National Trust staff were incredible too. Stayed in the cottages next to the church and on a night we pretty much had the lake to ourselves.
