This year the National Trust celebrates 125 years of looking after special places. To mark this milestone and to say thank you for all your support, we've pulled together some of our very best walks, covering 125 miles.
From the stunning Norfolk Coast, to discovering the stories and drama behind magnificent houses. Wander around their gardens or enjoy a walk in the countryside. Don't miss a visit to Blickling, Felbrigg, Oxburgh and Sheringham Park at this time of year.
It's time to enjoy one of the most beautiful times of the year at Blickling Estate. We're open daily from 10.30am in January, so come and explore the winter garden, blow the cobwebs away with a parkland walk or head to the house and discover our impressive collection.
Upcher snowdrops, early rhododendrons and camelias all bring early colour to the wild garden at Sheringham Park during January. Gaze out over the peaceful frosty parkland, breath in the fresh air and take a moment to listen out for the birds singing in the woods on your next visit.
Blow away those cobwebs and beat those winter blues with a walk around the Felbrigg Estate. Here you'll be able to take in the fresh air then warm up in the Squire's Pantry with one of our winter warmers. Then why not take advantage of the January sales in our shop?
Follow our most ambitious restoration project to date, which will secure the future of this 500 year old building. Along the way we'll share our discoveries, life behind the scenes and opportunities to take a closer look.
Thanks to support from players of People’s Postcode Lottery, work to restore Silvergate stream on Blickling Estate is now complete, and it’s hoped that by restoring the stream at its source, will bring big benefits for wildlife and the health of the wider river catchment.
A dormer window collapse back in 2016 has led to an ambitious project to restore Oxburgh's roof, including the Victorian windows and chimney stacks. With your help we can restore this building and save another one of Norfolk's treasures.
Not far from Cambridge you'll find Anglesey Abbey, where the gardens boast colour throughout the year. Head a little further afield and you'll discover Wimpole with its impressive mansion and Home Farm, the distinctive fenland landscape of Wicken Fen and one of the last working mills on the River Ouse.
The question about Suffolk, is where will you visit first? From a landscape made famous by the artist John Constable to the royal burial ground at Sutton Hoo. Enjoy a walk along the coast in the east, to the picturesque wool towns in the west. No visit would be complete without a trip to Ickworth.
There's more to Essex than first meets the eye. Tucked away you'll find lots of hidden gems, from Bourne Mill in Colchester to Paycocke's in Coggeshall. Blake's Wood, Danbury Common and Copt Hall are all great for walks, then there's Hatfield Forest, an ancient royal hunting forest.
