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. Put Blickling Estate into our Blickling holiday planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Blickling.

  • Interesting gardens, free to walk around but the house is expensive and leaves you slightly dissatisfied when you leave. Guides are very good but you don't feel any connection to the history of the bu...  read more »

  • The last time I visited here must have been about 30 years ago as a teenager. So to go back for a visit now was simply great! It is such a magical place to visit - wonderfully maintained and lots of r...  read more »
  • A trip on Easter Good Friday to do the children's Easter egg hunt. The instructions were a little bit confusing and I think not entirely accurate but great fun none-the-less. The gardens are beautiful. We didn't enter the house. The cafe had just about run out of all food except for crisps and scones by 2:15 so that was a disappointment. Probably thrown by the unexpected Easter good weather!
  • Beautiful house and estate. The national Trust do a fantastic job of keeping the house. It changes as the year goes through so you can visit many times a year if you are a member. The gardens are immaculately kept and cater for all abilities. There are areas close by the house and also areas for the Hardy walker, especially around the lake. Very picturesque and photogenic. Well worth a visit.
  • A fantastic place to visit, plenty to see without being overwhelming or 'same-y'. My fiancee compared it to a Downton Abbey like experience that was better than visiting Highclere!
  • One of the best National Trust places I have visited. It's well run and maintained. Plenty of rooms to view (a few places I've been to don't allow access to the kitchen but Blickling does) . Lovely large garden . If you fancy a pub lunch you pass the Buckinghamshire Arms on your way from car park to the Hall.
  • A brilliantly well maintained house with fantastic grounds. Lots to see and lots of rooms open to access with few ropes restricting movement.
