Sheringham Park is home to a variety of habitats, including woodland, parkland, farmland, a Wild Garden and clifftop areas – each of which is home to a wide range of wildlife and plants. From Britain’s smallest bird, the firecrest, to the largest mammal, the red deer, you never know what you might discover during your visit. 

Walking around Sheringham Park

Landscape gardener Humphry Repton once stated that: ‘Sheringham possesses more natural beauty and local advantages than any place I have ever seen.’ There are around 1,000 acres to explore, with walking trails to suit all ages and abilities.

Marked trails

The estate contains four waymarked routes, with distances ranging from one to five miles. Along with stunning coastal views, there's every likelihood that you'll spot some of the estate's varied wildlife, which includes butterflies, birds and three different species of deer.

  • A good variety of fungi can be seen. Recent workshops with local expert Tony Leech recorded about 100 species, including nationally rare lilac mushrooms and golden bootlegs. Parasols have been particularly common this year.
  • Autumn colour - an interesting combination of native and exotic tree species help to provide a stunning display as the leaves begin to fall.
  • Listen out for the calls of nuthatch and green woodpecker.
  • Southern hawker, common and ruddy darter dragonflies on the wing.
  • Red admiral, peacock and comma butterflies can often be seen sunning themselves on the vegetation.
  • Flocks of tits often form in good numbers; they are always worth looking out for as goldcrest, siskin and treecreeper amongst others move with them.
  • Varying colours of rowan berries providie a good food source for the birdlife of the park.
