Reasons for trip

Wonderful views out to sea and down to Sheringham Hall which is not open but looks lovely in the setting of woods and trees. The park was designed by Humphry Repton in the early 1800s, and there is an audio and a virtual Red book showing his designs. Climb to the top of the gazebo for a view over the park, the steam railway line and the North Norfolk coast.

Amazingly in January 2020 a rhododendron was in full flower, one azalea and a white camellia, but the show is amazing in April/May when I have visited before.

We walked all day mainly on the estate, through pine woods, and out along the crumbling cliff coast. Large flocks of geese came in over us to graze on the coastal fields, and then made quite a noise settling down. We looked for seals but saw none.

There is a carriage path up and down, which I have pushed a wheelchair down, but hard work coming up unless motorised!

You pay a day rate for parking but free if you are a National Trust member or Blue Badge holder and the park is open daily dawn to dusk, but check cafe and visitor centre opening times, which are always open week-ends.
