Sandringham is the much-loved Norfolk retreat of HRH The Queen, Elizabeth II. Located within 20,000 acres of the Norfolk countryside, Sandringham is one of only two privately owned homes of the Royal Family, favoured by four generations of British monarchs since 1862.
Her Majesty spends every Christmas and New Year at Sandringham House and is joined by many members of The Royal Family who traditionally take part in the Christmas Day service at The Church of St. Mary Magdalene on the Sandringham Estate. In 1957, the Queen made her first televised Christmas broadcast from the house.
When members of the Royal Family are not in residence, visitors to Sandringham can explore some of the rooms in the house along with its museum, gardens and church.
A trip to Sandringham wouldn’t be complete without visiting the recently refurbished and extended Visitors Centre, Café, Coffee and Gift Shops that are open all-year-round. Take a stroll around the 243-hectares of Country Park where the children and dogs will love the free space to roam as well as running off steam on the large adventure play area.
Annual events held at Sandringham include the famous Flower Show (held on the last Wednesday in July), Horse Driving Trials and the Christmas Gift and Craft Fair.
