Explore Blickling Estate
Covering 4,600 acres with 950 acres of woodland and parkland, and 3,500 acres of farmland, Blickling Estate is great for exploring alone, with family or your four-legged friends.
Explore the wider estate
Explore Blickling's extensive parkland and see some amazing sights, including the Tower, Great Wood and Mausoleum. Our new multi-use trail is suitable for cycles, pushchairs, mobility scooters and adapted wheelchairs, offering good access whatever the weather.
If you're looking for a walk that takes in all the best bits of Blickling's ancient woodland, with stunning views across the lake to the hall itself, then try our Estate walk.
Please note: the lake walk is currently closed due to poor walking conditions. Please bear with us as we work on improving the uneven and slippery terrain. We hope to open again for summer.
The Great Wood
From the end of April into May, don't miss the beautiful blue carpet of bluebells that stretches across the woodland floor. It really is a sight to behold. Our multi-use trail offers smooth terrain whatever the weather and is an ideal circular route for both adapted wheelchairs and buggies. Cycle hire is available every week, Friday to Sunday.
You can walk across much of this historic countryside using waymarked routes and the estate also connects with other national paths, including the Weavers Way (PDF / 0.6708984375MB) download .
The wider estate is the perfect for sharing with friends and family. You'll never forget your first sight of of the breath-taking red brick mansion that sits at the heart of a magnificent historic park in the beautiful Bure meadows. There's something for everyone, on foot, by bike or with your four legged friends.
Please don't hesitate to ask at Estate Barn visitor reception, off the main car park, for recommendations for walks, places to discover and things to see. How about asking about Lady's Cottage or the parkland sundial? We also have a fun and free family parkland trail for you to collect and enjoy answering riddles as you walk around the park.
Livestock graze freely, so please keep dogs under close control at all times. We also ask that you keep your dog on a lead when in the car park and whilst walking around the lake. Please always respect other park users. Dogs are welcome in the Farmyard outdoors are, where you will find Blickling's second-hand bookshop, plant centre and courtyard cafe. They are also welcome in the back room of Muddy Boots cafe and in the Buckinghamshire Arms pub.

Having been returned from arable land, the formal park and the livestock on it constitute an important grazing scheme at Blickling. Look out for cows and sheep at different times throughout the year.
Please note: the sheep return to our fields this April, so please keep dogs on leads at all times in areas with livestock.
