3. Blickling Hall

Top 10 ten - Norwich and around

Blickling Hall

Built in the early 17th century, Blickling is one of England's great Jacobean houses. The spectacular Long Gallery houses one of the finest private collections of rare books in England, and you can view fine Mortlake tapestries, intricate plasterwork ceilings, an excellent collection of furniture and paintings, as well as the newly restored 19th-century Hungerford Pollen painted ceiling.
 
The glorious gardens are beautiful all year round – with thousands of spring bulbs, swathes of bluebells, vibrant summer borders and rich autumn colours. It really is a garden for all seasons and, with its 18th-century Orangery, secret garden and woodland dell, there is plenty to discover.
 
The Hall is set in an historic park with miles of beautiful woodland and lakeside walks – it even has a pyramid-shaped Mausoleum. 
 
Facilities include a gift shop, plant sales and a restaurant.
