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.
The garden team have been busy planting over 100,000 daffodils, 10,000 tulips, 2,000 hyacinths and 400 hellebores, which will create a sea of colour you won’t want to miss during springtime. Then as spring progresses, magnolias bloom in the West Garden and we see a carpet of bluebells emerge in the Great Wood.
With spring the apple blossom bursts to life in Felbrigg’s orchard and Walled Garden. The azaleas and rhododendrons in the West Garden show their magnificent colours, whilst out on the Estate fresh green leaves emerge on the trees and wild primroses and bluebells add more interest.
Why not take the time to wander around the tranquil gardens at Peckover during the spring and enjoy the beautiful displays and bolder colours of daffodils and tulips? The spacious lawn is also shaded by specimen trees, look out for the ginkgo and tulip tree.
With the arrival of spring we see early rhododendrons in flower at Sheringham Park, along with our pierises that are believed to be among the largest in the country. Enjoy the colour and scent that comes with primroses, camellias and bluebells as the season progresses.
