Blue Festival 2018

Blickling Hall lit up blue after dark

To celebrate the return of our beautiful bluebells, we’re turning Blickling blue for a whole month. Join us for an array of blue-themed activities.


From the 19 April, join us later into the evening and see the exterior of the house lit up in stunning blue light.

Visit Estate Barn reception to collect a map and follow the 4 mile* circular-walk to the great wood, where, once in full spendour, you will see the incredible 'blue carpet' of bluebells. This is a great activity for all ages and abilities, as our new multi-use trail is a smooth terrain and is suitable for weelchairs and prams.

Learn more and join us for a special guided bluebell walk through the great wood on 26, 27 and 28 April from 10am. These will depart promptly from outside Estate Barn reception at the main car park.

*please ask for assitance at reception, if you would prefer not to walk and would like directions to the great wood car park, north of the estate.
