Embark on a voyage of discovery and follow four centuries of history at Blickling, from the Boleyn family to the RAF and Second World War. Learn what life was like as a servant and hear the stories of the real people who kept Blickling going. Explore the Long Gallery, which holds the most important book collection in the National Trust. The estate is a treasure trove of romantic buildings, beautiful and extensive gardens and landscape park. From 400-year-old yew hedges and historic trees, to a hidden pyramid and glistening lake, there is something for everyone to enjoy throughout the year.

Don't miss
  • Experience the four seasons through the spectacular garden.
  • Discover the splendour of a country house over four centuries.
