Family fun at Blickling Estate
Bring the whole family to explore the estate, follow trails and have a go at some of our 50 things to do before you're 11¾. With special events throughout the year and daily trails available, there will always be something fun to spark the imaginations of young and old alike.
Follow the winding paths to discover the animals of Blickling wood in the secret tunnels or see if you can find the secret garden. Have a go at our garden trail or play hide and seek between the yew hedges by the parterre. Whatever you choose, there's plenty to spark the imagination of pre-schoolers as well as older kids in the garden.
To tie in with our Lothian and India theme this year, during term-time pre-schoolers can explore the house, looking for elephants hidden in some of the rooms. On Wednesdays you'll find costumed interpretation around the house, with a variety of scenarios acted out. The cooks will be down in the kitchens on 15, 21 and 29 October cooking 1930s recipes where you may even get a taster.
