The Christmas home of the Royal Family since Victorian times, this grand estate in West Norfolk is one of the highlights of the East.

The House is surrounded by 24 hectares of carefully tended gardens, but the actual estate covers 8,000 hectares. The Country Park, which is open to the public free of charge, accounts for 240 of these and is a wonderful place for the whole family to visit. Tours of the house are available from spring to autumn, allowing you to see behind the scenes of this famous property. And there’s also a museum to visit, a visitor centre and restaurants where you can sample produce grown on the estate.
