ANNE BOLEYN'S FAMILY HOME


Built on the foundations of the Tudor manor house supposed to be the birthplace of Anne Boleyn, the unfortunate Second wife of Henry VIII.

Though the house we see today was built in 1616 on the ruins of the older property, Anne Boleyn’s headless body is still said to wander its halls on the anniversary of her execution. Designed by Robert Lyminge, the architect of Hatfield House, Blickling Hall is one of the finest stately homes in Norfolk. The park offers several miles of trails to be discovered, either by foot or on cycle, and for which maps are available at visitor reception. Three cafés serve light meals, snacks and hot and cold drinks, with much of the menu sourced from within the estate.
