Photography and filming at Blickling

Here at Blickling we love that our visitors can take home and share special moments from their day with us, but for those who are looking to use National Trust locations for anything other than personal use, here's a handy guide for photography at Blickling Estate.

Location release

Professional photographers will be aware of the legal importance of gaining permission to feature houses, gardens or parkland in their work. A location release provides a binding contract between the photographer and the National Trust whereby we grant written permission for the photographer or filmmaker to create a film, video, photoshoot or similar productions on our land. This is common practice for any owned land in the UK and it is unusual to find anywhere that doesn't require permission for professional photography, so if in doubt, always contact the location prior to your arrival on site. 

Press Photography

With the exception of organised press events at National Trust properties, all requests for access to National Trust places for press photography should be directed to

Editorial photography permit scheme

Eligible professional photographers can now acquire an annual license from National Trust Images to take photographs out of doors on pay-on-entry National Trust land for editorial use. For further information about the scheme please email:

Thank you

Thank you for your cooperation with legal guidelines. We look forward to receiving your professional and commercial photography requests.
