Overview
More
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.

This National Trust property is maybe a little pricey if you aren't National Trust members but there really is plenty to see and enjoy in the house, parts of which dates back to Elizabethan times. The house and gardens are immaculate with plenty of places...More

Very informative and friendly staff. Good disabled access. Be aware the RAF exhibition upstairs closes at 4pm. Ample parking, reasonable tea rooms.

A proper stately home set in lovely grounds. The house itself is very imposing and kept very well by NT. The recent history of the last owners connection with India's independence was truly fascinating. Lots of displays and guide sheets made the tour interesting and...More

This NT property is absolutely wonderful. Although we had both previously visited the property, we felt that we were seeing totally different things inside the Hall because there is simply so much to view. We then had a leisurely walk all around the beautifully maintained...More

An interesting building - very ornate Jacobean outside with a mix of Jacobean, Georgian and other items inside. Downstairs is far more interesting than the bedrooms. The gardens are very good. An excellent second hand bookshop in the Courtyard, along with a small cafe that...More

Response from Debbie W | Reviewed this property |
Dogs are allowed in the outside cafe which is accessible to the right of the main drive gates. This cafe doesn't have a vast choice of food, cakes, ice cream, coffee and cold drinks appear to be mainly what is on offer.
