Oxburgh Hall, King's Lynn

(750+ reviews on the web)
Architectural Building
No one forgets their first sight of Oxburgh. Built in 1482 by the Catholic Bedingfeld family, it is the enduring legacy of their survival through turbulent times. There are 500 years of history to explore and hidden doors, rooftop views and a secret priest's hole to discover. Victorian Gothic interiors reflect a romantic view of Oxburgh's medieval past. The collections include embroideries worked by Mary, Queen of Scots, and colourful wallpapers from the mid-19th century. The moated Hall is surrounded by nearly 28 hectares (70 acres), containing gardens with seasonal interest, streams and woodland walks. Dogs are welcome in the garden and woodland.

  • Lovely hidden gem. Restoration works going on in the inner courtyard at the moment but still well worth a visit. Still full access to gardens and house.
  • Love this place! Nice walks, beautiful scenery and the property is amazing. If you visit the house be sure to go in the priest hole well worth it.
  • Beautiful National Trust property, stunning grounds, the moat is amazing and you need to explore the Priest Hole.
  • A slice of history, a place I would recommend to visit over the summer time. Even thought its nice to visit during the colder season, as the grounds are maintained all year around, I can see the appeal to come back in the dryer months as there are nice bush walks you can do around the property. Unfortunately there is construction going on for restoration work, so we were not able to go past the moat.
  • Just love Oxburgh Hall a moated manor house with fantastic tapestries by Mary Queen of Scots when she was held in captivity
