Over the past few years we have visited Oxburgh Hall, with it’s moat surround, Felbrigg Hall, Blickling Hall and, of course, the memorable Sandringham House with its fabulous Gardens and fascinating museum.
Gardening and Bird Watching Week: 18—24 June. A new addition to our Themed Weeks in 2014, our Gardening Week proved popular so in 2015 we added Bird Watching to run alongside and was a great success. Visits to Garden Centres and local open gardens, along with trips to Titchwell R.S.P.B. Bird Reserve and Pensthorpe Nature Reserve make for a very popular Themed Week.
Sandringham Flower Show Week: 23—29 July. Our Flower Show week is always sold out early. Huge marquees provide the backdrop for wonderful horticultural masterpieces while the main arena offers an exciting programme of exhibitions, demonstrations and displays. With the chance to possibly meet some of the Royal Family on their “walk about”, this is the most famous one day flower show in the U.K. (this year on Wednesday 27 July).
Trains, Planes and Automobiles Week: 13—19 August. This venture proves a huge success for all transport enthusiasts. Our visits in the past have included a train ride on the North Norfolk Steam Railway, Thursford Steam Museum, Muckleburgh Military Collection and the Imperial War Museum at Duxford as well as the wonderful Museum at Sandringham House.
Music, Movies and Drama Week: 17—23 September. It’s starting to get darker earlier and with not so many venues open its time to relax and be entertained with classic old and new films during the day for all tastes – we might even include some popcorn! With live music in the evenings from our local artistes, with plenty of favourite songs to sing along to. Great entertainment for a relaxing holiday.
Creative Writing and Craft Week: 22—28 October. 2015 saw our Craft Week move to October. This week coincides with the Companions of Park House Christmas Market. This year we have added Creative Writing to the week. Crafts planned will have a special Christmas theme including card making, decoupage and more.

Christmas Comes Early at Park House Week. Start to celebrate Christmas early as we enter into the festive spirit. The decorations are up and we can offer you a break with seasonal and festive concerts, not forgetting attractions at local venues. In the week leading up to Christmas we try to attend the annual Carol Service in King’s Lynn Minster and hopefully be entertained to some Carol Singing from local Songsters and Choirs. Our Activities Staff and Volunteers can make your Christmas shopping trips a lot more fun and you can enjoy Christmas lights, excursions and a lot more.
