Description

Set within 55 acres of formal gardens, and over 4,600 acres of woodland, parkland and farmland, Blickling House is on of Norfolk's most impressive sites.

The rather striking Jacobean mansion is open to visitors and has some remarkable views looking out over the ancient yew hedges that sit at the hard of a rather majestic garden.

      Great for a short-ish bike ride, the terrain is not too rough or too smooth so it's a little bit of a challenge without being silly. The estate and grounds are beautiful too, so whether you're biking around or have just come for a stroll it's absolutely stunning in all weather.

      Don’t bother if you have accessibility needs!We came with our 13month old and the pram on a cold and wet day.On approach to the house, but after paying, with our pram visible, we see a sign saying the lift is out of action. Bit annoying we wasn’t told but fine, I’ll carry her.Went to leave the pram tucked to the side of the house hallway at the permission of staff, when another staff told us to put the pram outside with no consideration of the weather.The orginal staff member went to explain she had permitted it but was sharply cut off by this rude lady and overruled.Partly cause I didn’t like the way she was speaking to her colleague, I asked “the pram would be okay around the house if the lift was working?”. She goes, no, you’d only she the ground level. The lift has been broken since October and we aren’t having it fixed.Why not tell us this when we paid to enter?! Why lie on the sign and make it look like an unlucky day for us?We were able to carry our baby but as she’s new to walking we rushed round as she started to fight being held, wanting to practice herself. Others may not have the options or may have accessibility needs themselves.They will happily take your money and make the situation appear to be something it’s not. The rude staff set the tone for the visit and made us not feel considered.

      This place is one of my favourite National Trust properties in the British Isles. There is so much history and beauty to be found in each room, and the guides are extremely knowledgable and more than happy to tell you about everything they know of the estate and its history.If you happen to go on a Tuesday, you may come across a group of librarians caring for books in the Long Gallery, and they are the best source of information when it comes to learning about the staggering collection that Blickling possesses (think first editions from Jane Austen, and one of a kind bibles written in extinct languages!)The Second-hand bookshop on site is the largest in the National Trust, with over 25000 on display, so if you’re a bibliophile, this is the place for you!There are 55 acres of garden (including a kitchen garden) and 4,600 acres of parkland and farmland, so it’s a great place to come and stroll even if you can’t visit the house itself.Most things close at 5, except the house and bookshop at 4, and the parkland which is open from dawn till dusk. House last entry is at 3.30pm, and gardens last entry 4.30pm.

      Took hounds for a walk at Blickling Hall (Tues 11th March 2024) as I am a new member of NT. House and grounds are lovely, although when walking round lake, distinct lack of dog poo bins. One at beginning and one at the end, and that was it.Had a gorgeous bookshop, which was wonderful and filled with literary delights. I came out with a box full of books, although there was an elderly woman who kept saying she would 'do me a deal' as I was buying so much. She took the books from me and put them in a box. When it came to paying, she said she had added them up already. I added some more books and I had to question her mental arithmetic as she had added the last few incorrectly. Wasn't until I got home and added the main books up, I found she had overcharged me 50p! 🤔🤭 A gorgeous bookshop, but beware a bossy old woman offering dubious deals!! 😆 Besides this quirky little blip, all the staff and volunteers were very friendly. Cafe was nice, although pricey. Had a bacon bap, which was tasty. I will come back to Blickling when next in the neighbourhood. Pleasant people and surroundings. Do visit.

      We went on a lovely tour of the house where we learned so much about the fascinating history and stories of the house. Everything we saw was lovely however we only went upstairs and didn't see any of the kitchens or downstairs rooms. That said all the volunteers were lovely and we did visit in the off season.

      A beautiful house to visit. Had a tour with 2 wonderful quides, who were very well informed about the house, fitting in small anacdotes to make it interesting. The house reopens after February half term on a free flow basis, will definitely return to see the rest of the house. Gardens extensive, walks still to be explored. A definite recommendation to go.

      Blickling luckily is my local NT location, so we walk there all year round, most weeks. Even with all the rain you can walk most of it without the mud, except around the lake. The best bet is the cycle route in wet weather, the park only closes in high winds. its a walkers paradise, there are several variations so you can walk, anything up to four or five miles without leaving the estate. the inner gardens are lovely in summer and at Xmas. The house is worth a visit, we normally only visit it once a year. The muddy boots cafe close to the car park, allows dogs. the other cafe has a wider selection of food. The overflow carpark can get muddy in the winter. A tip if you are approaching from Aylsham, drive past the house on your right, do not turn in by the pub drive past it, the next turn on the right is the entrance to the car park. A lot of people make the mistake of trying to turn in by the pub. During the summer months the court yard cafe is also open. there are toilets close to each cafe.

      Our family favourite New Year's Day walk ❤️ roughly 2 miles in total the route we took, a bit sludgy in places but fine with some good shoes. Lovely cafe to end it with a coffee and cake. The only letdown was dog owners leaving their small plastic bags all along the route - please take it with you

      Be aware, the house has booked slots, we drove for a few hours to get here only to find by half 10 all was booked and we could not go in. We had a walk around the grounds but didn't stay long and headed off, unfortunately due to its location we won't be going back so missed the opportunity to see the property.

      Fantastic place, full of history and stories about the ownership and it's uses throughout the centuries. The staff are brilliant - really worth engaging with them and asking questions - they're full of stories and knowledge. Beautiful building in beautiful grounds. Just sit by the lake and soak it all up.

      Best bits for me were the walks out to the temple and orangery, the walled garden, the ornate ceilings and sitting in a deckchair by the lake.

      Blickling Hall is always a great day out with brilliant volunteers and staff. We love exploring the estate and also relaxing by the lake with a few sneaky books! Really great to see the summer of play happening again and giving so many adults a welcome laugh. Only thing I would like to see is a few different walks in the future, for when we've completed the current selection of trails.

      What a great experience. It was a very historic experience. We loved the house and gardens equally. Jacobean architecture at its symmetrical best. Fantastic englishness.

      An absolutely beautiful place but my limited walking capabilities made it impossible for me. They do have rental mobility scooters but I wasn't aware of the vast grounds of Blickling Hall.

      This was our second visit to Blicking Hall. This time we walked around the massive park land. Last time we concentrated on the main house and we did a guided walk in the vegetable garden. The beautiful house belonged to Anne Boleyn's family originally.Should not miss the small museum explaining how the printing stared from the very beginning. Amazing volunteers had all the time in their hands to explain any questions we had in our mind regarding a printing press and the process.

      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. Free for National Trust members, including parking, you just need to scan your card to have a ticket for your car, yellow button first. Lovely place for a walk. Looks like on Christmas used to display a nice Christmas market quite nicely decorated, I should ask next time.

      Lovely house and gardens. RAF museum worth a look at too. Very helpful and informative guide called Suzanne. She was so friendly and knowledgeable so thank you to her. Lift is now working but tight if on a mobility scooter.

      Spent a day at Blickling as there was so much to see and do. Although not all the rooms in the hall were open due to a shortage of volunteers what I saw was impressive and the room guides very knowledgeable. My husband enjoyed the RAF museum and talking to the volunteer there. Great 2nd hand bookshop. All the staff and volunteers we spoke to were friendly and helpful. Lovely walks in the gardens and around the estate … much of it dog friendly.

      Gardens are beautiful and a paradise for many types of bees and wasps(which by the way) are great pollinators.The house itself is amazing and perfectly preserved and well maintained.There is a cafe which has wide variety and selection of food and drinks to offer, including vegan options. The prices and food are good.Well worth a visit.

      Had a nice walk around the Blickling Estate. Some of the gardens were getting more attention than others though. Very interesting walk around the house too.

      Great place for a wander. The hall itself is interesting and the gardens lovely, but if you’re a family with a dog then the estate has a great range of walks as well.

      A real gem.A quintessential National Trust experience.The moat house is a time capsule of the past. Elizabethan to mid 20th century.Enlightening without being an educational bore.The NT curators and staff are perfect, part of the visitors' experience.The amazing gardens and grounds and estate are worth the visit aloneRecommended.

      Ideal for a walk and dogs welcome on short leads. Dogs can go most places except the formal gardens and house. Well marked trails for all appetites. Good facilities on site and ample parking.

      A very nice historic place to visit. It is full of history and amazing things. The grounds are really nice. It's nice to just walk around the lake and not have to visit the house. The staff are all very friendly.

      Beautiful house in a massive estate, with lots of walks for all abilities. The walk around the lake takes around an hour, and has great views of the house.Beautiful gardens, and the RAF museum is worth a visit. The tea rooms are large with plenty of seating outside, and offer the usual fare.

      Really nice National Trust property and gardens. Bringing history to life, with really passionate and engaged guides. The chap in the printing museum was particularly good (think his name Rod). Gift shop and 2 cafes are available!

      Title: A Day of Wonder at Blickling HallMy visit to Blickling Hall today was nothing short of enchanting. The former home of Mr. Blickling, this majestic estate showcases a life of opulence and grandeur. The house itself is a true architectural marvel, boasting intricate details and stunning craftsmanship.The grounds surrounding Blickling Hall are equally captivating. The sprawling landscape, adorned with lush gardens and spectacular old trees, offers a serene retreat. Some of these ancient trees are simply awe-inspiring, standing as silent witnesses to centuries of history.A trip to Blickling Hall is not just a visit to a beautiful estate, but a journey through time. It's impossible not to be impressed by the remarkable preservation of both the house and the grounds, providing a unique window into the past.In summary, a visit to Blickling Hall is an unforgettable experience, revealing a world of elegance and natural beauty. It is a must-see destination that promises to captivate and inspire all who have the pleasure of exploring its magnificent halls and grounds.

      Beautiful place- fantastic architecture, house a real treat to go around- full of history all explained by the excellent & professional volunteers. Amazing grounds, staggering Gardens with plenty of seating to take in the scenery as well as well plotted walks ranging from 1.9 miles to 4.2miles for those more active. An impressive lake next to the house along with plenty of flora & fauna to take in. Highly recommend a visit!

      A really nice day out with National Trust. The gardens are amazing and attended by a small army of dedicated volunteers who are doing wonders. It's great to see the gardens evolving. We walked up to the temple and then down the avenue, back to the house and you are rewarded by a magnificent view. The fountain is lovely to see. Cafés, shops and the wonderful charity bookshop add to the whole experience. You really could spend the whole day here. The location is stunning and there's even a pub next door if you fancy a pint! Definitely worth the trip.

      One of the best national trust properties I have visited in a long time. One of the so called treasure houses which lives up to its name with an impressive collection of art and artifacts as well as impressive interiors and a huge library. The staff were all pleasant and very welcoming with Chuck on the front door being a true character and great to chat to

      Very impressive building. All open with lots to see. We got there early and did a walk around the grounds before the house opened. Plenty of parking available which is free for National Trust members.The house and gardens are lovely and definitely worth a visit as there is so much to loom at. There is a short walk from the car park to the house which takes you past a lovely looking and busy (whilst we passed) public house. On entry to the gardens and house we were asked to show tickets which is good.The house itself is massive and make sure you visit the kitchen before leaving.

      Absolutely amazing place! Nice house and estate for a walk or family picnic. There are 2 cafes: one by the entrance and another in the house. We hired bikes on-site (for a super good price!) and went for a very enjoyable bike ride.

      Blickling Hall is lovely. Had a good walk round the grounds. Lots to see.Went into House, very nice and we just walked round at our own pace. The Kitchen was interesting and lovely stained glass window in entrance hall. Parking was a more difficult than normal. As the coach park, was not block off. We got into the overflow car park, bit tight for our Motorhome. Worth a visit. The staff are fantastic and helpful.
