Overview

You'll never forget your first sight of Blickling. Sitting in a magnificent garden and park is a breath-taking mansion, flanked by ancient yew hedges. Past owners have used the estate as a refuge while performing on the world's political stage. Philip Kerr, the last private owner, helped shaped the National Trust's history, using his influence to find a way of saving great country houses for future generations to enjoy. Until his death in 1940 he used the house for entertaining his prominent guests; and photographs, sounds and objects help to tell his story. Outside, the formal garden is the result of three centuries of inspired planting, and the gently undulating historic parkland is great for exploring.

For me, what I really liked about Blickling is that it's not too big. You can walk round the house in under two hours which means you get to see everything, without being totally overwhelmed by thousands of rooms etc. The manor gives you a...More

Very informative and friendly staff. Good disabled access. Be aware the RAF exhibition upstairs closes at 4pm. Ample parking, reasonable tea rooms.
