This beautiful area is best known for the location of Sandringham House the royal holiday home. The stunning house is perhaps the most famous stately home in Norfolk and sits at the heart of the 20,000-acre Sandringham Estate. The beautiful gardens around the house extend to 60 acres. In spring there are displays of rhododendrons and magnolias as well as havens for bees and butterflies in the summer. Surrounding the house and gardens are the 600 acres of heath and woodland of the superb Country Park, which is open to the public daily.

There is plenty to do on a trip to Sandringham - you will need at least four hours to explore the house alone.  Walk on one of the trails, enjoy a picnic, visit the Adventure Play Area or maybe enjoy an ice cream or lunch in the Sandringham Cafe and Coffee Shop. The Estate also has an Exhibition and Transport Museum which holds an amazing collection from the very first Royal car to the 1939 Merryweather fire engine.


Sandringham village is the birthplace of Diana Princess of Wales.

The parish church of St Mary Magdalene, Sandringham, is considered to be one of the finest carrstone buildings in existence and dates back in its present form to the 16th century. A country church of exceptional historic interest, with memorials to many members and relations of the Royal Family from Queen Victoria onwards. It is used regularly as a place of worship by the Royal Family, which normally includes Christmas.


Sandringham is conveniently situated close to the west and north Norfolk Coast. There are many beaches to explore and the west coast beaches are known for brilliant sunsets, making for a really memorable evening. Brancaster beach is superb for relaxing beach days with the family. Walk along the beach and seals can often be spotted bobbing in the inlet.

Much of this area is also an Area of Outstanding Beauty and many conservation areas teeming with birds and wildlife from RSPB Titchwell, Snettisham Nature Reserve and Holme NWT to name a few. Alternatively pop on your walking boots or bicycle as there are many routes, including the National Cycle Route, Peddars Way and Norfolk Coastal Path.

For something delicious to eat visit the Rose and Crown in Snettisham, a local gem which also boast the Norfolk Pub of the year award and just 3 miles away Thornham has some great delis and farm shops.
