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 'Fit Together' health walks, run by Active Norfolk.

Walking is a great way to find out more about the area you live in and to meet new people, as well as experiencing the obvious health benefits. There is a level to suit everyone, from beginners to more experienced walkers and walks often begin at a location where you can have refreshments and a chat after the walk.
