Blick­ling Es­tate, Nor­folk

My Weekly Special - - | Gardening -

At Blick­ling, Christ­mas is a mag­i­cal time for all the fam­ily. The trees that line the drive­way are dressed for the sea­son with fairy lights. All across the glo­ri­ous gar­dens, 19,000 sparkling lights il­lu­mi­nate the path­ways and scenery. See the Tem­ple Walk, Parterre and Walled Garden as you’ve never seen them be­fore. Then step inside to explore the house dec­o­rated with Christ­mas trees, gar­lands and fes­tive splen­dour. Warm up with mulled wine and a mince pie, or sim­ply soak up the mag­i­cal at­mos­phere inside or out! Week­ends are pop­u­lar with fam­i­lies, but you can visit on a week­day evening if you fancy a qui­eter, more con­tem­pla­tive ex­pe­ri­ence. The grounds are vast, with a large lake. The house is a ma­jes­tic place to visit. Blick­ling Es­tate is open for Christ­mas from De­cem­ber 1-21, from 10.30am-6.30pm (last en­try 5.45pm). www.na­tion­al­trust.org.uk/blick­ling-es­tate
