Hotels near the Blickling Hall
Blickling Hall is an imposing Jacobean stately home that is under the efficient wing of the National Trust. Built in the early 17th century, it is famed for being owned briefly by the Boleyn family.
The Long Gallery houses a rich collection of rare books, while fine tapestries and paintings adorn the walls. Immaculate gardens typical of the era stretch out in front of the house and the nearby lake and woodland offer tempting country walks. The grounds host various open-air concerts and theatre events during the summer season. Apparently, there's even a headless ghost of Anne Boleyn that roams through its many rooms and halls...
