Christmas in Norfolk

Our places in Norfolk are ready to share their festive traditions with you. Father Christmas, carols, houses decorated for the season, crafts and seasonal treats; there's plenty of things to do. Plus every time you visit you're helping us to look after these special places. So why not make us part of your Christmas?

The tree lined front drive at Blickling Hall

Blickling in a new light 

There's something really rather magical about a visit to Blickling in the lead up to Christmas. From the iconic Christmas trees lining the drive to the garden of lights where you can wander through the parterre, along the temple walk and round to the walled garden. Warm up with festive treats in the café and enjoy a spot of Christmas shopping in the Loft Gallery whilst you're here.
