Welcome to Sandringham estate

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 sits at the heart of the 20,000-acre Sandringham Estate and Country Par.

Sandringham is surrounded by 60 acres of glorious, mature gardens.

Explore sweeping glades and lawns, go on the woodland and lake walks and discover the rockery.

Discover 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.

This beautiful medieval church 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 house private tour

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. Your guests will have the splendour of Sandringham House to themselves with plenty of time to view each room, ask questions and listen to the knowledgeable guides who will accompany you.

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. Both the Tea Room and the Restaurant are available.

Travel time from Central London to Sandringham Estate is 2hour 35minutes but may vary dependant on traffic.
