We're reopening the places you love in Norfolk, safely and in line with government guidance. We recommend you book in advance for visits to Blickling Estate, Felbrigg Hall, Oxburgh Hall and Sheringham Park, especially at busy times such as weekends and over the festive period.
With frosty mornings, striking landscapes and plenty of peace and tranquility, it's time to enjoy one of the most beautiful times of the year at Blickling Estate. Grab your wellies or bring your bikes and come to blow the cobwebs away. Enjoy exploring the garden and wider estate, before enjoying a takeaway drink or something tasty from our café.
Enjoy a walk on the estate at Felbrigg Hall and immerse yourself in nature at a quieter time of the year. Many migrant birds make Felbrigg their home over the winter months, so there's always something of interest to see. To warm up after your walk why not treat yourself to a takeaway treat from our tearoom?
Sheringham is great for nature-spotting during the winter months. Listen out for pink-footed geese, song and mistle thrush, the great spotted woodpecker and the calls of nuthatch. Early flowering rhododendrons add colour to the wild garden in the run up to Christmas, followed in the new year by camellias and the 'Upcher' snowdrop named after the family that used to own the park.
Oxburgh Hall is currently undergoing an exciting restoration and it's all thanks to your support. Whilst work continues on the roof, enjoy a walk around the crisp landscape, discovering new areas of the parkland and warm up with a hot drink from our Pantry Cafe. Check our opening times for the latest information, as to when the house is open.
Head to the Norfolk Coast this winter and discover a world of noise and colour. From golden sunsets to the skeins of pink-footed geese that fill the sky. Explore the coast on one of our crisp winter walks or enjoy the view with a hot drink and tasty snack from our refreshment kiosk at Morston Quay.
Head to Horsey to discover the Norfolk Broads in all its winter glory. Enjoy a walk, a spot of wildlife watching and grab a tasty treat as you watch the world go by. Enjoy a moment of calm as the sun sets over this iconic and special landscape.
Norfolk is a great place for a day out with the family. From crabbing at Blakeney, cycling at Blickling, wildlife watching at Sheringham Park, as well as plenty of space to enjoy a walk at Felbrigg and Oxburgh Hall.
Throughout Norfolk there are many trails and footpaths that will take you through stunning scenery, from the iconic coastline to the Norfolk Broads. As well as the coastal path, head off the beaten track at Sheringham Park, Felbrigg Hall and Blickling Estate.
Best breeding season for rare little terns for 25 years
One of the UK’s few remaining little tern colonies at Blakeney National Nature Reserve has had its most successful season for 25 years thanks to a lack of disturbance, few predators and a helping of luck. This year, nesting pairs of little terns fledged over 200 chicks at Blakeney Point.
