What to explore at Blickling
This section of the page features an image gallery, so if you're using a screen reader you may wish to jump to the main content.
We currently have an exciting project in the Upper Ante Room, relighting our very important Mortlake tapestries, so that they can be viewed in the best possible way.
Work is due to be completed by the end of May, and until then the tapestries are unavailable for viewing.
Make sure you come back over the Summer when they will be hanging in all their glory once again.
Our favourite outdoor activities
Bring your bike, grab a map from reception, and head out into the park to explore the waymarked trails
There are some great walks around the estate. Choose from 2km to 7km (or both!)
Enjoy running with other people? You'll love parkrun. A free, timed 5km run takes place every Saturday.
