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 has implemented 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.
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 is open beside the Country Park, which visitors can access from the new pathways, and the courtyard to the front of the buildings has been 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 are now all open 7 days per week.
This Autumn 2020, the second stage of improvements has begun, with new revenue being invested into the continued improvement of the Country Park. Recently submitted planning applications, in relation to the Country Park’s play area, are part of the Estate’s ongoing works. Further details will be shared in due course.
