Blickling Estate, Norfolk

Early morning on the Blickling Hall estate with the house reflected in the water of the lake, and a bluish mist all around

Blickling Estate in Norfolk was designed as a place of refuge and tranquil beauty.

You'll find features from across the eras of its design, such as the formality of the 17th century and the more natural approach of the 18th century.
There are 55 acres of gardens so you're going to have to hunt hard to find the secret garden. We'll give you some clues though - it's in the wilderness area and is surrounded, on three sides, by a beech hedge. You'll know you've found the right spot when you see the little trellised summer house.
