Houghton Hall was built in the 1720s for Great Britain’s first Prime Minister, Sir Robert Walpole. Houghton Hall is one of England’s finest Palladian houses, it was designed by a collaboration between the two defining British architects of the age – Colen Campbell and James Gibbs – and with lavish interiors by William Kent.
A fine example of a late medieval, inward-facing great house, Oxburgh stands within a square moat about 75 metres on each side. It dates back to 1482 when it was built by Sir Edmund Bedingfeld.
Sandringham is the much-loved country retreat of Her Majesty The Queen, and has been the private home of four generations of British monarchs since 1862. The house, set in 24 hectares of stunning gardens, is perhaps the most famous stately home in Norfolk and is at the heart of the 8,000-hectare Sandringham Estate, 240 hectares of which make up the woodland and heath of the Country Park, open to the public free of charge every day of the year.
