Steeped in history, Felbrigg Hall combines grandeur and homeliness. With the Felbrigg name dating right back to the 11th Century, it brings a history all of its own. A number of residents have influenced the development of the Hall over the centuries as can be seen when visiting.
The work on the hall that you can see today was carried out throughout the 17th and 18th centuries. The Windham Family were in residence at the time adding their influence. Further alterations followed during the 19th Century when William Lukin inherited the Estate.
The Estate is now owned and run by the National Trust and maintained for the pleasure of visitors. To help children discover the history of the Hall, story boxes have been placed in many places throughout the rooms.
The Gardens at Felbrigg Hall are an amazing experience in themselves just waiting to be discovered. The gardens offer the sensory experience of the Walled Garden as well as the stunning collections in the Orangery. There is an amazing selection of very old and very unusual plants within the gardens, not to mention the stunning rose gardens. For garden lovers this is a selection of some of Norfolk’s finest offerings, come and see for yourself.
For those wanting to enjoy the surroundings of the Estate, there are 211 hectares of marked trails and woodlands. Much of this area has surfaces suitable for buggies on the main routes. This attention to detail ensures an inclusive visitor experience especially for viewing wildlife and nature within the Estate.
Events are organised throughout the year so don’t think Felbrigg Hall is just a day out for the summer holidays.
As for catering options, The Squires Pantry offers tea and cake or a light meal and there is plenty on offer in the Gift Shop too.
