Oxburgh Hall, King's Lynn

4.6
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.

  • You couldn't ask for friendlier staff! Right from the front gate being greeted, through to the ticket desk making sure we had maps, to the volunteers inside the hall sharing their knowledge and passion. I would highly recommend coming here on a warm day or even when the sun is out to enjoy the gardens. The view from roof is stunning, so make sure you go all the way up On an odd side note, I did the children's card activity and it was great for adults too! Highly recommend for keeping everyone entertained
  • This is a lovely place. The hall and it's rooms are just fascinating and the volunteers are really engaging and knowledgeable. Last but not least, the tea room is just amazing. It is located in the old kitchen, they serve great, self-made food and the decoration is so great. Will definitely go there again.
  • A fabulous family friendly National Trust attraction. It's got beautiful grounds with long and short walks. Staff are amazingly friendly and helpful two people young and old. Managed to catch a half hour of sun to have a picnic on the lawn. The best day.
  • Moated manor near Watton in Norfolk. Lovely house and grounds with cafe, book shop and restaurant. We enjoyed spending the whole day here. High lights where the views from the roof tower and the large pike in the most. Good for children of all ages .
  • Beautiful location, just make sure the weather is on your side. Went to a choral event in the small church on site and it was fantastic, the grounds and hall are stunning and the cafe offers a good choice of snacks and drinks.
