“A great start to our NT year”
Reviewed March 16, 2014 via mobile

Fantastic day out, this was our first NT property and with this high standard will not be our last! Lovely house and setting. The staff were informed and really polite, all questions were answered by people who really love what they do and that showed throughout the day. The walk around the woods and stream was great after having a picnic. 8.5/10. Plenty of events through the year which will keep us coming back.

“Well I'm shocked to read the last two reviews as I thought Oxburgh Hall was stunning.”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

I have wanted to explore Oxburgh Hall for years and at last the day arrived! It was a lovely bright morning, although cold. We were greeted on the bridge by a very well informed guide who gave us a short overview of the hall and it's history and why not all the contents are original is because some of the hall was destroyed and the other parts have been added to during the Victorian era whilst the family have, and still do, live there. Each of the rooms that are open to the public have a very knowledgeable volunteer guide to answer any questions you might have and most of the rooms do in fact have artefacts appropriate for the building's history. I was fascinated with all the layers of wall paper discovered from various era's and the priest hole was a great find. Also the more able were invited to a roof top view of the grounds which was very impressive. We went into the chapel which was a later addition to the estate after the original catholic chapel only yards from the Hall had been destroyed. We were fortunate enough to see the amazing triptych which will now be closed for the six weeks of lent. We also enjoyed a scone and cuppa served by very friendly staff before walking across the car park and viewing the spectacular terracotta screens that survived the destruction of the original chapel.

“Usual Greed”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

My comment covers Oxburgh Hall and other National Trust Properties regarding cafés and restaurants. Dreadfully greedy on meals and food. When we visit NT places now we take our own as we are fed up with being ripped off.

Good for a day out and exploring local history in East Anglia and a very interesting building with a moat.
