National Trust Properties

National Trust Properties

Visiting a National Trust property is a brilliant way to spend a day out, and Forest Park is lucky enough to be in close proximity to several. These properties are all within a 20-minute drive of the park

Felbrigg Hall, Gardens and Estate 

This 17th-Century hall is teeming with history, featuring stained glass windows and a collection from across the globe, including Queen Mary’s teapot and luxury exports traded by the East India Company. Outside the hall, 520 acres of landscape offers a great place to explore nature and wildlife across woods and trails. 

Sheringham Park 

Sheringham Park was designed by Humphry Repton and features an exhibition of his work – it’s also said to be his favourite of the properties he designed. The park features 1,000 acres, including woodland, parkland and cliff top and is famous for its collection of rhododendrons and azaleas. It’s also home to three species of deer and a variety of birds and butterflies. 

West Runton and Beeston Regis Heath 

West Runton and Beeston Regis Heath offers stunning sea views and all sorts of wildlife, from nightjars and badgers to adders and butterflies. Depending on the time of year, you can also spot different flowers blooming on the heath, as well as a variety of toadstolls in the woods. The site is also home to earthworks constructed during World War II, so this is also a great opportunity to experience some history. 

Blickling Estate 

The 55 acres of garden at Blickling Estate feature topiaries, herbaceous borders and sweeping lawns, as well as a temple and a lake. The hall is a breathtaking Jacobean mansion that is home to the Long Gallery Library, which houses a nationally important book collection.
