Sandringham Palace

Sandringham is set in 60 acres of stunning gardens. The woodland and heath of the Country Park are open to the public free of charge every day of the year. There are two waymarked Nature Trails, one 1½ mile long and the other 2½ miles long, and there are many other woodland paths to explore.

Sandringham is 6 miles north-east of King's Lynn and is signposted from the A148 Fakenham road and the A149 Hunstanton road.(For Satellite Navigation: PE35 6EH).

One of His Royal Highness's principles has been to maintain the estate for future generations, so conservation has always been important. Over five thousand trees and several miles of hedges are planted each year, ten wetland areas have been created, sympathetic farming practices encourage many different species of wildlife, and food waste, glass, metals, plastic, cardboard and paper are all recycled.

The Estate is perhaps best known for the apples and apple juice from its own orchards, but it also includes farmland growing wheat, barley and rye, conifer and broadleaf woodland, and organic vegetables and soft fruit. Apple-picking on the Sandringham orchards is a popular afternoon out in the autumn. Timber is processed in the sawmill and used for fencing and buildings. Vegetables are used in the restaurant and cut flowers and herbs sold at the visitor centre.

There is free car and coach parking, and this is where you will find the Restaurant, Gift Shop and Plant Centre. From April to October, popular tractor and trailer tours take visitors around parts of the Estate not normally open, with a commentary by the driver.

The Visitor Centre is open every day through the winter, the Restaurant from 9.30am to 4.30pm, the Gift Shop from 10.30am to 4.30pm and the Plant Centre from 11am to 4pm.
