Great Norfolk Country Houses
The rich and famous of history used the wide open spaces of Norfolk to found large estates and build great houses, ranging from the fortified manor to wildly indulgent mansions. Some of the most interesting are open to visitors:
Blickling Hall (National Trust) – a Jacobean house reputed to be visited by the ghost of Anne Boleyn, Henry VIII's second wife. The house has a fine collection of furniture and rare books. There are excellent lakeside and woodland walks in the grounds.
