IMPROVEMENT WORKS AT SANDRINGHAM VISITOR CENTRE & COUNTRY PARK.
Set within the heart of the 8,000-hectare Sandringham Estate is Sandringham House, the private residence of Her Majesty The Queen and the Royal Family. Each year, thousands of people are welcomed to the Sandringham Estate to enjoy the Country Park, House, Museum and Gardens throughout the seasons. In recent years, the number of people and vehicles to Sandringham Estate has increased significantly, particularly in the Country Park, which received over 500,000 visitors last year.
As was announced in October 2019, Sandringham Estate will implement a car parking charge to assist with the increasing cost of maintaining existing facilities and to allow funding for future developments to improve the Visitor Experience. These charges will now come into effect in June 2020.
Detailed Works at Sandringham Visitor Centre
Pre Covid-19, the Estate underwent the first stages of improvement works with a view to offering better facilities for visitors, while also maintaining the landscape and environment for all to enjoy. Around the Visitor Centre significant replanting has been underway in the arboretum and car parks, new pathways have been laid to improve pedestrian access, buildings redecorated and lighting improved.
Car parks have been newly replanted with an increase in the number of disabled bays; a newly opened pedestrian pathway is now present between the car park and facilities. An Arboretum will open beside the Country Park, which visitors will be able to access from the new pathways, and the courtyard to the front of the buildings will be enlarged and resurfaced with improved outdoor seating. The gift shop now has an expanded plant sales area and an entire new range of products developed around Sandringham, its Royal ownership and the Norfolk countryside. The Sandringham Café has also received a major makeover. The new and improved shop, café and courtyard will open as soon as they are able in line with the latest Government advice.
From Autumn 2020, the second stage of improvements will begin, whereby new revenue will be invested into the continued improvement of the Country Park. Over the coming months, Sandringham Estate will be working closely with the community to understand which areas visitors would like to see focused on as part of these improvements. Further details will be shared in due course.
