The beautiful medieval parish church of St Mary Magdalene, Sandringham, is a country church of exceptional historic interest

The parish church of St Mary Magdalene, Sandringham, has held memorials to many members and relations of the Royal Family from Queen Victoria onwards. It is used regularly as a place of worship by the Royal Family and Estate staff.

Sandringham Church is considered to be one of the finest carrstone buildings in existence and dates back in its present form to the 16th-century. The sumptuously decorated chancel with its carved angels frames the silver altar and reredos presented to Queen Alexandra by the American Rodman Wanamaker as a tribute to King Edward VII. He also presented her with the silver pulpit and a silver 17th-century Spanish processional cross.

Other notable features include a Florentine marble font, a Greek 9th-century font and stained glass from the 16th-century onwards.
