February fun at Blickling

Don't forget to bring your wellies

We might still be in the midst of Winter, but at Blickling Estate we're all about keeping a sense of excitement for the first school holiday of 2019. Join us throughout half term for The Tiger Who Came to Tea and enjoy getting active in the great outdoors...

Explore the garden

Collect a children's map from visitor reception and enjoy playing in the gardens. Tick off some of your '50 things to do before you're 11¾', find the secret tunnels for a game of hide and seek, make a human sundial, balance on logs and even touch a sticky tree. Keep your eyes peeled for a sprinkling of snowdrops and beautiful scented hellebores in the Dell and Orangery garden.

Sow and grow

Join us every day in the walled kitchen garden and find little wheelbarrows and watering cans for gardening fun. Enjoy planting seeds in your very own pot before taking it home with you to watch it grow.

Wellie walks

Wrap up warm and pull on your wellington boots for a wonderful winter walk. Our multi-use trail is perfect whatever the weather, so grab a family nature trail from visitor reception and enjoy exploring 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.
