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

2017 leaflet

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 every day all through the year, apart from Good Friday and Christmas Day.

Sandringham House, Gardens and Museum, and Sandringham Church, are open daily from Saturday 15th April until Friday 21st July, and then again from Saturday 29th July up to and including Sunday 29th October 2017.
