Stately Homes and Seaside Castles of Norfolk

From $1,535

Summary

Our historical tour of Norfolk begins as we travel through verdant rolling countryside to our first stately home, the 500-year-old Oxburgh Hall, a survivor from the War of the Roses, followed by a visit to one of Britain’s largest and best-preserved keeps, Castle Rising. We also visit the Blickling Estate, a stunning Jacobean mansion set in magnificent parklands and glorious gardens. After a brief trip on the North Norfolk Heritage Railway, we head to what is one of Norfolk’s most famous stately homes, Sandringham, the much-loved retreat of the British monarchy, where we have the chance to enjoy a memorable afternoon tea followed by a private guided tour. The Palladian-style Holkham Hall, home to the Earls of Leicester, and the charming, moated manor of Hindringham Hall are next on our visit list, with private access to the beautifully tended gardens included at the latter. Another Palladian-style house features as we visit Wolterton Park, as well as the Regency house Hoveton Hall, where we will meet the current owner. Finally, we join Lady Walpole at her ancestral family home, Mannington Hall, for a guided tour and light lunch before we return to our original joining points.

  • Afternoon Tea with Sparkling wine and guided evening tour of Sandringham
