We're starting to reopen some National Trust gardens and parks, as well as car parks, in line with government guidance. You will need to book your visit in advance. In Norfolk, you can now book visits to Blickling Estate, Felbrigg Hall, Oxburgh Hall and Sheringham Park. We'll be opening new places when we can, so check back each week.
Enjoy a day out to Blickling, where the Walled Garden and Parterre are bursting with summer colour. Whilst you're here, why not enjoy a walk around the lake, through the meadows and along the river? Muddy Boots Café and our Estate Barn shop are open too.
Soak up the sunshine in the Walled Garden surrounded by exotic plants or cool down on a walk through the woods or a wander around the lake. You can also grab some light refreshments and snacks to add to your picnic from our Squire's Pantry Kiosk.
Oxburgh Hall might look a little different whilst we undergo a major roof project. However, we look forward to welcoming you back, so you can once more enjoy walks around these peaceful gardens and historic parkland.

2020 is the 125th anniversary of the National Trust and as we celebrate this special birthday year, we’re also taking the opportunity to look back at where it all began. Here are some of the key moments in our history of caring for special places, in East Anglia.
We look back at the vital role East Anglia played in the war effort during the Second World War. The region became home to over 350,000 American air force personnel, country houses were requisitioned and our coast was used in the preparations for the D-Day landings.
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.
It costs a lot of money to care for historic buildings and our tiles, timbers and brickwork are showing signs of aging. As we embark on a £6million project to repair the roof, we need your help to raise money and safeguard Oxburgh's future.
