Pick of the bunch for National Picnic Month in Norfolk

Norfolk's best picnic spots from The Sowerbys’ team.

Here at Sowerbys we love a picnic – and what better time to recommend our favourite spots than National Picnic Month?

With our big skies and wide open spaces we really do have pick of the bunch when it comes to picking the picnic spot.

Here’s a few we recommend:

Holkham Hall Estate

The vast park that surrounds Holkham Hall is always a delight with forest areas, open space to cycle and walk, and the roaming majestic deer to admire.
Take a stroll or cycle around a section of this 3,000 acre space before throwing down a blanket to rest and snack.

Everyone is welcome to picnic in Holkham Park, but please do not take any cooking equipment. The risk of fire is high and therefore barbecues, fires and cooking stoves are strictly prohibited in Holkham Park, the Holkham National Nature Reserve, Holkham Beach and Wells Beach.

Sandringham Estate

Sandringham Royal Park spreads over 243 hectares with trails for cycling or exploring by foot and a children's play area.

You can take your furry friends along too as the park is dog-friendly and provides various facilities.
Be sure to visit the Sandringham Shop and the Terrace Café for extra treats (both open daily from 9.30am-5pm).


Sandy Brancaster on the north Norfolk coast stretches for miles so it’s easy to find your own quiet spot for your picnic hamper.
Why not take a walk around Brancaster Staithe before or after the picnic; here you can soak up the wildlife of the saltmarsh and the harbour.

Castle Acre Priory

Combine a family picnic with some local history and spend the day exploring this incredible area; one of the largest and best preserved monastic sites in England dating back to 1090.

You can even plan your visit in time for a historical re-enactment to take your picnic back in time.

 Castle Acre is part of English Heritage so a small entry fee may apply.
