Visiting Sandringham

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 great deal to see and do at Sandringham and you may find it helpful to download a copy of the 2014 leaflet.

The annual exhibition in the Ballroom of Sandringham House for the 2014 season will be "Edward Seago at Sandringham", a selection of works by the celebrated Norfolk-born landscape painter. Several members of the Royal Family have collected paintings by Seago, and some of these, together with some previously unseen sketches, will be on display.

The exhibition includes landscapes painted during the 1956-57 voyage in the Royal Yacht Britannia, when Seago was invited to accompany HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, as well as paintings with a distinct Norfolk theme and views of Sandringham - Seago was a frequent guest of HM The Queen Mother at Sandringham over many years.

The Ballroom exhibition is open when Sandringham House is open, and entry is included in the admission fee to the House.

Private Evening Tours of Sandringham House are available by prior arrangement for groups. Afternoon tea for two, including entry to the House, Museum and Gardens, is available by prebooking through the Restaurant - more details available here.

Average time of visit: allow 3-4 hours.

All prices include VAT at the prevailing rate: Sandringham's VAT number is 320.
