Waymarked walks

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 / 0.7MB) download . Just speak to a member of the visitor welcome team on arrival and they'll suggest the best walk depending on what you'd like to see and how much time you've got.

 

Dog walking

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.

Livestock

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. 

Tennant farmers' cows graze freely in Blickling's fields.
