Sandringham House

A beautiful home set in a lush 20,000-acre (8,094-hectare) estate of gardens, woodland and lakes, Sandringham House is known as a retreat of the Royal family. Queen Victoria bought the property in 1862, to give to her son (the future Edward VII) and his wife to use as their family home. In 1865, Edward decided that there was simply not enough room for his growing family and their possessions, and so the original hall from 1771 was taken down and a new building replaced it. The new house was a firm favourite with all of the family, and every British monarch since has taken residence here, traditionally spending New Year at the house.

Visiting Sandringham
Sandringham House opened to the public in 1977 and, today, visitors can explore the ground floor of the sumptuous palace, including its grand reception rooms. The stables are also open, and feature a varied range of Royal memorabilia including the Royal vintage car collection. Among the motors on display are the first ever Royal car from 1900, and the small electric cars driven around the estate by young princes and future kings.

“Overall a good break especially considering it was the first one back after lockdown. The hotel was clean and well stocked, a few more staff needed but I'm sure that will be resolved shortly. A coach breaking down can't be foreseen but replacement was swift, the drivers knowledgeable and skilful. Sue, our tour manager, was quick to pick up when service needed chasing, she was also knowledgeable of the area, as was 'wonder woman' Jude; the guide for Norwich old city. We met some very nice fellow guests and interesting people, it's good to move tables at dinner so as to meet new people, we Brits [as all were due to Covid] do tend to sit in the same place each meal unless encouraged to move. Covid arrangements felt sufficient without being onerous. however the 'spy' hole to check visitors was set a little high! [photo] Overall another Great Rail holiday, we'll be back!
