Sandringham Country Park provides public access to nearly 243 hectares of the Queen’s private estate at Sandringham in Norfolk. It lies within the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
There are two waymarked nature trails, of 4 km (2.5 mi) and 2.4 km (1.5mi) length; and many other woodland paths to enjoy, through a mixture of evergreen and deciduous trees, pine, oak, sweet chestnut and birch. With plenty of space for picnicking, a small children’s play area and bird hide, there is much to do outdoors. If the weather is wet, visitors can explore the house, which is the Queen’s Norfolk retreat, or the museum, which holds a collection of Royal vehicles, ceramics, photos and other memorabilia.
There is also the parish church of St Mary Magdalene, Sandringham, the scene of many Royal events since Queen Victoria’s time.
