One of the finest examples of Humphry Repton's garden design, Sheringham Park's landscape park and woodland gardens are famous for their fabulous displays of rhododendrons and azaleas. The park is open throughout the year, and free to visit, although a car parking charge applies.
Experience breathtaking views of this beautiful landscape from the top of the Gazebo and viewing towers. The Gazebo does have 192 steps to climb, but the view from the top will be worth it…on clear days you can see as far as Wells-next-the-sea!
There are numerous habitats in the park to discover, which provide homes to a wide variety of UK wildlife, including the Firecrest (the smallest bird in the UK!), White Admiral butterflies, and even the rare Barbestelle bat! The park also has geocaches to hunt for as you enjoy the wonderful scenery, this treasure hunt can be enjoyed by the whole family, with friends, or on your own, you just need a GPS or a smart phone. (GPSs can be borrowed free of charge from the Visitor Centre.)
Most of the trails are suitable for bikes, and a bike park and lockers are available near the Visitor Centre. Dog walkers welcome, but the family pooch will need to be kept on a lead around the visitor facilities and grazing cattle.
The Bower is a great place to relax, plus it has activities for children, including minibeasting and environmental art! This is an ideal spot for families to visit, with a bug hunting area, pond, and flower meadow providing great places to look for wildlife.
