Sandringham Estate is the country home to the British Royal Family, a much loved winter destination for the late Queen Elizabeth II, and a fantastic destination to visit in the lead up to the coronation. Described by King George V as “The place I love more than anywhere else in the world”, it definitely has the Royal Seal of Approval. The grounds, covering 800 hectares in the heart of North Norfolk, are home to breath-taking woodland, heath, and gardens.
The crown-jewel being the House itself, is one of the most famous stately homes in the UK and has been pen to the public since 1977. Though 24 acres of Woodland and Heath – the Sandringham Royal Park is open to the public every day of the year, any visits to the house will require booking in advance.
From Heacham Manor, it is just a short 15 minute drive to Sandringham Estate, making it the perfect place to visit. There are always exciting events and activities at the estate – with plenty more added to the social calendar on the lead up to the coronation weekend.

Or, visit the gardens to see the spring flowering of Daffodils and Snowdrops. Fall in love with the estate as so many monarchs have over the years.
