Welcome to the Sandringham Estate: The Norfolk retreat of HM The Queen
Sandringham is the much-loved country retreat of Her Majesty The Queen, and has been the private home of four generations of British monarchs since 1862. 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.
“Dear old Sandringham, the place I love better than anywhere in the world” King George V
The Estate is a thriving mixed landscape, including the tidal mudflats of the Wash, woodland and wetland, arable, livestock and fruit farms, and commercial and residential properties; it is managed to a high standard and sustainably with the aims always of being financially self-sufficient and of providing a place of enjoyment not only for The Royal Family but also for the many thousands of visitors who come to see the House, Museum and Gardens or just to enjoy the Country Park.
When visiting Sandringham allow yourself enough time to visit all there is to see and to walk in the beautiful woodlands, there are two nature trails and many tree-lined paths. There are also picnic ares and a children’s playground. The visitor centre provides excellent facilities and is open all year round. There is a Restaurant, Gift Shop, Plant Centre, Tractor and Trailer Tours, and the Stables Tearoom. There is also the church of St.Mary Magdalen. The Country Park is open every day of the year and entrance and parking are free.
