As a perk for working for the National Trust, I get FREE family admission to all NT properties [and some English Heritage sites – like Stonehenge – so going there in the Spring], so we are on a roll! Having just visited Blicking Estate for a long walk, late Saturday and will be at the Owl Prowl tomorrow at Sheringham Park, we thought we should check out one that is a little further away. So after looking at our options, we set out for Oxburgh Hall, just south of Swaffham. When looking at the map, it looked so much further than it really was.
Having never been there before, we didn’t know what to expect other than it is a castle-like manor house surrounded by a moat. They have various garden areas, as well as, a very large home, along with several nature walks and different trails for the kids.
When Soren saw this tiger, he was stunned and kept asking if it was real (meaning once alive)!
We climbed to the top to see the panoramic views from the gatehouse rooftop, but I was so stressed up there. The wind and the kids going down the very step, angled spiral brick steps, I didn’t enjoy it much!
