We always wanted to visit and finally got there. A quiet tranquil Shrine and gardens. A place to rest, sit, contemplate and pray. It was a sunny day and we could of stayed all day.

If you wish to find peace of mind,heart and soul, this is the place to go. An amazing village (Little Walsingham), two public houses with restaurant facility. We stayed at the RC hostel (Elmham House) which was fabulous (en suite) and a wholesome breakfast. Many faiths have their shrines here. You do not have to be religious to appreciate the... More

Having been to Norfolk a number of times, this was my first trip to this village and the history reaching back over 500 years is fascinating.

The village is very quiet and it was great to just sit in the grounds of the shrine and listen to the birds and relax after a long journey. We were made so welcome... More

This was somewhere on our list to visit as we live so close anyway. It was a co-incidence that the snow drop walk was available that weekend. It was a beautiful walk and the admission fee went to charity. The day was beautiful and the grounds and snowdrops were a lovely and special experience, there are areas where they are... More

I visited following the funeral of my son and found the place so peaceful and comforting. I lit a candle and sat quietly with my thoughts and although there were many other visitors, everyone showed great respect for the surroundings. A wonderful, serene atmosphere.
