Fun for all the family 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 lots to do throughout the year and daily trails available, there will always be something fun to spark the imaginations of young and old alike.
Collect a children's map from visitor reception and head out on an adventure around the colourful gardens. Find the secret tunnels, squishy trees, sundial and more. There's plenty of fun to be had, from a family game of hide and seek between the yew hedges, to planting seeds in the walled kitchen garden.
Discover the magic of the Blickling in winter. Come rain or shine, the house is open 363 days of the year, giving you even more opportunities to visit us.
There are so many things to do around the estate and plenty of opportunities to tick off some of your '50 things'. Why not build a den, fly a kite or create some wild art?
If you fancy getting out on your bike, why not bring a picnic? Our multi-use trail is specifically designed for families to enjoy, offering a safe route through the estate. Find out more about the multi-use trail.
Take part in our family nature trail in the parkland any day of the week. This walk around the wider estate is ideal for older children as it encourages curious minds to solve riddles and complete the puzzle to reveal a mystery word. You can take part on foot or by bike, all you need to do is collect a trail sheet from visitor reception.
