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.

I really enjoyed touring the estate and habing my lunch in the garden. I especially liked the library where there are books dating back to the 14th Century. The furnishings and decor are original and the tour guides at every turn are ever so helpful...More

We felt the expense was a rip off as we had already paid for parking separately and for 2 seniors we then had to pay almost £40 to see the house and gardens. The gardens were neat but small and the house provided information sheets...More

Really excellent National Trust property. The gardens are a delight to go around even in late September; we had a guided (and free) tour of the garden by one of the volunteer gardeners which was very informative. The house is very interesting with a wealth...More

The gardens are superb and looked beautiful even at this time of year. Walled garden was good. I would liked to have had more of the rooms open to view in the house but the conservators were interesting. The RAF museum was good.. learned a...More

Hi, I find the car park a very long way from the Hall itself. You have to walk past the Muddy Boots cafe, down a slope for a while, across a road, past the pub, along in front of half the Hall and down the Hall drive. If you... More
