Tuesday 25 April 2017

Sandringham House, the Norfolk retreat of Her Majesty the Queen, is set in 60 acres of beautiful gardens. All the main ground floor rooms used by the Royal Family are open to the public and are full of their treasured ornaments, portraits and furniture. They are still maintained in the style of Edward VII and Queen Alexandra. A short walk from the House is the church of St. Mary Magdalene where the Royal Family attend services. The present church dates back to the Tudor period. Highlights include the gilded woodwork and richly panelled walls as well as the much admired, glittering silver altar and reredos.

The day is free for you to enjoy all that Sandringham offers - House, gardens, church and museum. The visitor centre has a restaurant, coffee shop, gift shop and plant centre. If you prefer there is space to bring a picnic and take a stroll in the park. 

Cost £32.50 including coach and entrance fee to the House, gardens and museum. Lunch and morning coffee are not included in the cost of visit.  The booking form is available here.
