Pictures of Sandringham
in the county of Norfolk
Enchanting estate of over 7,000 acres of breath-taking countryside surrounding a magnificent house which has been the home of four generation of British Sovereigns since it was bought in 1862 for the Prince of Wales, who later became King Edward VII. The estate contains farms and woodlands of several parishes, and a large country park which is free all year to visiting members of the public. It has interesting nature trails, superb wooded areas, heath-land and a visitors centre with a gift shop.
Sandringham House, although a Royal residence does not have the rarefied atmosphere of a grand house, this is largely due to the fact that much of the content and the decor, remain almost as they were in the Victorian and Edwardian era's. A quiet country charm pervades the house and it is easy to imagine the Royals relaxing in this beautiful place. The rooms open to the public on the ground floor, are those used by the Royal Family. The park church, where the Royal Family attend services is quite exceptional. It has a strong spiritual atmosphere and many reminders of its historic past, included in these is an organ that was the last gift of King Edward VII.
Sandringham Estate is within easy driving distance of King's Lynn and can easily be reached from any of the coastal resorts lining The Wash.
