Staying safe

In England and Wales, face coverings are required in indoor areas, except in cafés and tea-rooms, unless you're exempt.

Here are a few of the ways that we're trying to keep you safe at Blickling this year:

  • All tickets must be pre-booked (this includes members and non-members)
  • We are limiting the number of people at each event
  • Hand sanitiser stations have been positioned at key areas throughout your visit
  • We're continuing to closely follow Government guidance

Good to know

  • The car park will close just after 2pm and not reopen again until 3.30pm when we start welcoming visitors for the Garden of Lights event
  • Please note that only assistance dogs are allowed at this event.
  • From 29 November - 19 December, if you'd like to come for a walk in the parkland, we'd recommend you head to one of our outlying car parks as our main car park will only be available for those with a ticket to our Christmas events
  • The Stamp Shop will be open by appointment only for the viewing and purchasing of collector quality stamps from our stock books. Please call 01263 738075 for further information. Alternatively, you can visit the second-hand bookshop and browse through a selection of stamp sheets, packets of stamps, complete albums, stamp catalogues, first day covers and bags of stamps. 
  • The RAF Museum will be open from Friday to Sunday every week (10am until 2pm) if you fancy immersing yourself in the fascinating tales of the men and women who were stationed at RAF Oulton
Festive gingerbread

It wouldn't be Christmas without...

Hot spiced apple, gingerbread trees, hot chocolate and mince pies. Just some of the little things that complete your festive visit and make a big difference to us. By visiting Blickling, you're helping conserve this unique estate, so thank you.
