Blickling Estate, Blickling

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.

  • Beautiful house and gardens with lots to explore - my only criticism would be that there isn't much to take around the house to engage children; but with all that outside space who really cares?? A few different cafe's to pick from, a nice play area, lovely gardens. Definitely worth the drive!
  • Best to visit when the weather is a bit warmer and plants in flower. Nice grounds to walk around. Separate walks for dogs. House interesting as probable birth place of Ann Boleyn. Knowledgeable and helpful guides in the house. Access to upper floor by lift and slightly different route for wheelchair users.
