Activities for all at Blickling Estate

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.

Let's get active

We’ve been busy planning an exciting new fitness programme for 2018, including cycle hire and cricket in the park. 

Cycle hire is available every Saturday and Sunday from Estate Barn at the main car park. Our multi-use trail is available all year round and is perfect for a bike ride, whatever the weather.

Our brilliant cricket sets, courtesy of the Norfolk Cricket Board, are also available to borrow from cycle hire every weekend from 10am. A fully refundable £10 deposit is required upon hire and all equipment must be returned by 4pm at the latest to receive your refund.

Explore a little further... 

Why not try out our new all-weather, multi-use trail over the holidays. The route offers a 4-mile (6.5km) safe off-road path through Blickling’s beautiful historic park and farm land. It's tailored for families to explore, but it's also perfect for cyclists, walkers, runners and adapted wheelchair users to enjoy. As it starts and finishes at the Muddy Boots cafe, there's lots of opportunity to reward yourself with a well earned treat.

Exploring by bike

If you fancy more of a challenge, why not try the 14 mile cycle along Sustrans Regional Route 33 from Aylsham to Felbrigg Hall?  

There are bike parks available, as well as bike locks, pumps and repair kits.  You can also refill your water bottles at any of the three cafes.
