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.

  • Really beautiful estate, with stunning gardens. You could spend ages here going on numerous different walks. The house is of a grand scale with stunning high ceilings and lovely decor. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable about the estate. Overall a great day out for the family.
  • There is something for everyone here, lovely lake to walk around with you dog. Magnificent house to look around and beautiful gardens. The newly opened walled kitchen garden is inspirational!
  • Well worth a visit, the house, gardens, and a walk around the beautiful lake and a cuppa and a cake at the end of it, I'm glad I joined the national trust, just for here, if you're wanting a meal the pub outside the hall has a very good menu and selection of drinks. food excellent.
  • Lovely house and grounds well worth visiting in a picturesque part of unspoilt at the moment! North Norfolk. Good walks in the surrounding park area. The only downside hence three stars is a charge in the fishermans car park which puts the cost up of a days fishing for non members of all Ages to £10.00 a day minimum!.
  • Thoroughly enjoyed our first visit here. Beautiful gardens and great walks in the park. House visit was really interesting as the conservators were working on that day. Food and drinks were good and reasonably priced.
