Autumn activities at Blickling Estate

Children take part in a wheelbarrow race in the garden.

This autumn we have an exciting programme of fun and games across the estate. Enjoy keeping fit with a variety of activities from walking and cycling to archery and cricket.

Activity sessions | Weekends 11am - 3pm

Meet us every Saturday and Sunday on the parade in the garden for activities for all the family. With a variety of games and sporting equipment available, including boules and archery, why not join in the fun?

Cricket | Daily

Our brilliant cricket sets, courtesy of the Norfolk Cricket Board, are available to borrow from cycle hire every day from 10am. A fully refundable £10 deposit is required upon hire and all equipment must be returned by 4pm at the latest to receive your refund.

" It has been exciting to work on this innovative project to offer people the chance to play cricket at some of the most well-known locations in the county. We hope that families and friends will want to hire these excellent sets for an hour or so to add something really fun and special to their day out."
- Kieron Tuck, Norfolk Cricket Board

Cricket has always been a favourite at Blickling Estate, with the first game on record dating back to 1787. Over two hundred years later, why not continue the legacy and have a go at this classic past-time?
