The house, set in 24 hectares of stunning gardens, is perhaps the most famous stately home in Norfolk and is at the heart of the 8,000-hectare Sandringham Estate, 240 hectares of which make up the woodland and heath of the Country Park, open to the public free of charge every day of the year.

Castle Acre: Castle Acre Priory
This important Norfolk visitor attraction is one of the largest and best preserved monastic sites in England dating back to 1090. It was the home of the first Cluniac order of monks to England and the Cluniac love of decoration is everywhere reflected in the extensive ruins.

There is much to see at the priory, including the beautiful west end church gable, prior’s lodging and substantial remains of many of the buildings round the cloister. The recreated herb garden grows herbs, which the monks would have used for medicinal, culinary and decorative purposes. Visitors can enjoy exhibitions, display of artefacts and audio tours.

Snettisham Bird Watching
On the biggest high tides each month, witness the world-famous Snettisham spectacular. Many tens of thousands of wading birds take to the air as the incoming tide pushes them off the vast mudflats. Also keep your eyes on the skies as the swallows and martins of summer depart southwards and the first thrushes and wildfowl arrive from the north.
