Sandringham Estate is probably the most famous of all Norfolk’s attractions. Sandringham is the Royal country retreat and has been the private home of four generations of British monarchs since 1862. The house itself is set in 60 acres of stunning gardens with stunning displays of ornamental plants, trees, streams and lakes.
The entire Estate is enormous covering 20,000-acre of countryside. Sandringham Country Park consists of 600 acres of woodland and heath which is open to the public free of charge every day of the year. The Visitors Centre at the Country Park has a gift shop, tea room/restaurant, small garden centre and an ice cream stand which sells some of (in our opinion) some of the best ice cream to be found anywhere!!
The visitors centre sits aside a large open field, perfect for a family picnic and outdoor games. The Country Park with it’s shady woodland is an excellent spot for long walks. Dogs are welcome (especially corgi’s).
