Sandringham House in Norfolk is the country retreat of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The much-loved home of four generations of British monarchs since 1862, George V referred to it as “the place I love better than anywhere in the world”.
The house and its 24 hectares of glorious gardens lie at the heart of the vast Sandringham Estate. Including woodlands, farms, homes, businesses and a country park that is free to enter and open to visitors every day of the year, the Estate provides employment for over 200 people.
The house and gardens are also open to visitors. Whilst there, try and make time to see Sandringham Church: dating back to the sixteenth century it contains many royal memorials and is still regularly used as a place of worship by the royal family.
