Visiting Sandringham

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

2018 leaflet (pdf file)

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 Visitor Centre Restaurant offers a two-course lunch with tickets to visit the House, Museum and Gardens, and many visitors find this a convenient option for themselves or as a gift for somebody else - further details are available on the Restaurant's website.  

The shops and restaurants at the Visitor Centre are normally open almost every day all through the year.  Opening hours in January will be as follows:
