This Royal Estate, the country home of the Royal family in Norfolk, is magnificent. It is really worth a visit; most people probably only think of going to Buckingham Palace, etc. but besides the beauty, this is a real insight into the family and how...More

Extremely disappointing! On arrival at Sandringham Estate we visited the Restaurant (large shed/canteen) in the car park to collect our entrance tickets to the house. At this point we were told that this was where we would be having our afternoon tea...my heart sank! The...More

A lovely day out can be had at Sandringham House. The car park is large, the walks are very enjoyable and the cafes and restaurant well priced. Paying to visit the house, museum and/or walled garden is worth it. The rooms open to the public...More

It seems odd that a road cuts through the Sandringham Estate, but I guess that's a matter of history. We visited primarily to see the house and the church, but there is lots to see and do in the wider estate and the car park...More
