King George VI and Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother loved their time at Sandringham in Norfolk, and their daughter, Queen Elizabeth II, seems to share their real affection for this beautiful estate in the heart of the Norfolk countryside. Her Majesty the Queen's love of horses is well known and the estate is home to the Royal Stables, where some of her favourite horses have been bred.
Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip and their family spend every Christmas at the palace providing the much loved photos of all The Royal Family attending the church service on Christmas morning.Enquire about Experience

Sandringham was built in 1870 by the Prince and Princess of Wales (later King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra) and has remained a private home for four
generations of British monarchs. The main ground floor rooms, regularly used by the Royal Family, are open to the public and the decor and contents
remain very much as they were in Edwardian times. The House is surrounded by 60 acres of glorious, mature gardens, which all sits at the heart of the
20,000-acre Sandringham Estate and Country Par. Explore sweeping glades and lawns, go on the woodland and lake walks and discover the rockery.
Journey through the history and workings of the Sandringham Estate and view our extraordinary Royal Motor Car Collection, which ranges from the first Royal motor car to a model James Bond Aston Martin. The beautiful medieval church of St Mary Magdalene is open during the visitor season. The highly decorated interior contains a silver altar and pulpit, a 16th century processional cross and memorials to the Royal Family.
Sandringham, the Norfolk country home of Her Majesty The Queen, will be available for private tours of the House before or after the normal opening hours of 11am to 5pm.
On your arrival you will be escorted by a senior member of the Estate staff from the gardens entrance and into the glorious grounds that surround Sandringham House. Guests will have the splendour of the House to themselves with plenty of time to view each room, ask questions and soak in all the knowledge bestowed onto you by the guides who will accompany you through Sandringham.
The tour normally lasts around an hour, allowing you to enjoy the beautiful collections of porcelain, jade, rose quartz, silver Russian gilt and bronzes, admire the family portraits and photographs and study the Victorian and Edwardian decor and furnishings in a home that was created to be the epitome of style in 1870. A gentle stroll back around the pretty ornamental lakes below the House will take you back to the Sandringham Visitor Centre where you may book a reception or dinner.
