Blickling Estate, Blickling
(4.6/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • What a wonderful day had by all! The Service was fantastic a big thank you to all the staff that made our day absolutely wonderful. The Hall and grounds were amazing and we managed to see nearly all that was there as it is very wheel chair friendly. Our dearest friend who has terminal cancer requested a whish to be taken for a day out to Blickling Hall and she wasn't disappointed can I say a big thank you to all the staff who made this such a wonderful day for Gail and our selves . Thank you Paula .Lynne and Gail xx
  • Decided on bank holiday Monday to visit Blickling Hall. It is a great place to visit for the history and for the gardens! My whole family were please with our afternoon visit. The place is looked after so well. Great place to visit, we will go back again. 5 stars.
  • One of our favourite National Trusts. The pub by the visitor's centre does some of the finest meals I've ever had in a pub. The RAF museum upstairs was excellent too. Some very personal exhibits.
  • A well maintained NT house, if you have read anything about the Tudors you will know this place. Lovely WW2 RAF museum on the upper floor. Great bookshop.
  • Brilliant. The activities for children are fab and make it relevant to all ages . Very plesent days are spent here with my 4 children (there aren't many places I say that about ) and great value for money with a membership. Plenty of outdoor space nice cafe, lots of information . Even when busy you hardly see other people .
