Blickling is a great place for those wanting to get active and explore the great outdoors in Norfolk. From walking and cycling to running and fishing, there's lots to entertain every age and interest...

With over 4,600 acres of stunning parkland to explore at Blickling, highlights include ancient woodland, the Tower that was once used by the 2nd Earl of Buckinghamshire as a grandstand, and the striking pyramid Mausoleum. Not to mention sweeping views over the lake, back towards the hall.

Blickling parkrun 

Enjoy running? Then you'll love parkrun. A free, timed 5km run which takes place every Saturday at Blickling. You might get a little muddy and the temperature might be refreshing, but you'll certainly feel energised after a run around the park.

Blickling Estate's way marked trails are perfect for dog walkers.
