21st century treasure-hunting

Time to prepare for your next adventure and discover some beautiful places you’ve never been to before.

We've been working closely with Cotswold Outdoor and Garmin to create our first ‘official’ geocache trail. This outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices takes you all over Blickling's park. Watch this video to find out how to do it.

Broadland & South Norfolk Fit Together

Blickling Estate is often the venue for free health walks run by Active Norfolk.

Walking is a great way to find out more about the area you live in, meet new people and keep fit.  There is a level to suit everyone, from beginners to more experienced walkers.  Fit Together will be meeting at Blickling on 30 October,  9 and 25 November and 14 December.

Join the campaign

Blickling Estate is a great place to start ticking things off your list. Pick up a free scrapbook from our visitor reception team and get started.

Why not download our new companion app, which takes you through the entire 50 things list with all the best places and your nearest spaces, presented in a fun and interactive way. It's never been so easy to collect rewards, unlock certificates and show the world how wild you can be!
