Sandringham's gardens were opened to the public by King Edward VII in 1908, and the Museum by King George V in 1930; Sandringham House was opened to the public at Her Majesty The Queen's wish in her Silver Jubilee year of 1977.
There is a very great deal to see and do at Sandringham (a copy of our 2013 leaflet is available here); we recommend that visitors allow at least 4 hours in order to get the most out of their time here, and to make the most of the unhurried welcome we offer.
The shops and restaurants at the Visitor Centre are open every day all through the year, except on Good Friday. Please note that we regret we are unable at present to offer tractor and trailer tours of the Country Park.
