'The Edge of Things'
Following the success of The Word Defiant! last year, 2019 sees Blickling embark on a new project, working with artists Neville Gabie and Joan Gabie.
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
The Edge of Things will once again draw inspiration from Blickling’s nationally important book collection. Responding to language, natural history, astronomy and the work of the first scientist to use microscopes, the artists will showcase a series of installations and live projects in the house and Orangery.
The Edge of Things opens on 17 May and will run daily until October. There will also be an exciting programme of events to support this project.

What is Gift Aid?
Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.
Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:
- Gift Aid Admission
- Standard Admission
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.
Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:
|Amount paid by visitor||£11.00||£10.00|
|Tax refund from Government*||£2.75||£0.00|
|Total received by the National Trust||£13.75||£10.00|
*Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
Free access to the shops, cafés, RAF Oulton Museum, plant centre, second-hand bookshop, Loft Gallery exhibitions and wider estate, including all park walks. Fishing permits are available at the lakeside.
Parking and entry is free for National Trust members. For non-members there is a fixed daily charge of £5 for all car parks, which will go towards the care, maintenance and conservation of the parkland and ensure that the parking areas are maintained. The machine does not take notes, so please ensure you have £5 of coins with you. However, if needed, visitors can pay for parking by notes or card at Estate Barn visitor reception. There is no charge for blue badge holders in the allocated areas.
Winter pricing for the whole property covers 1 January - 10 March and 28 October - 29 November.
- Families welcome
- Assistance dogs are welcome.
- Most of the installations are in accessible areas.
