Boston - Sandringham & Norfolk Lavender (full day)

Your tour today takes you to the wonderful stately home in the heart of the Norfolk countryside, Sandringham. Built in 1870 by the then Prince and Princess of Wales, Sandringham was once described as ‘The most comfortable house in England’. It has been passed down as a private home through four generations of Bristish monarchs and is now the country retreat of Her Majesty The Queen and His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh. Sandringham is where the Queen and her family spend each Christmas and is therefore a real family home, full of their nick nacks and favourite things.

The main ground floor rooms, regulary used by the Royal Family, are open for you to see and the décor and contents remain very much as they were in Edwardian times. Take a self guided tour of house and enjoy some free time to explore the grounds and the museum at your leisure. You will find curators in each room of the house and of course your guide will be on hand.

A short distance from Sandringham you will find Norfolk Lavender. This is a wonderful place, full of all things Lavender! In fact there are over 150 varieties here and this is the true home of English Lavender. Enjoy a tour of the grounds and hear all about the exceptional qualities of lavender. See how it is grown, distilled and turned into different products. Explore the Fragrant Meadow and enjoy the tranquility, scents and and colours which are here all year round.
