One of Norfolk’s most magical places. With carpets and carpets of snowdrops in February and bluebells in May, it is a breath-taking scene. The snowdrops have naturalised throughout the grounds and woodlands and are an enchanting spectacle for children.
The River Stiffkey runs through the abbey grounds, adding to the magic – you might find yourself happily distracted by a perfect Pooh-sticks bridge or one of the wishing wells.
Outside of springtime, it’s still a fantastic sight, with an “WOW” inducing archway from the spectacular ruins of the mediaeval Priory of our Lady of Walsingham (you’re actually looking at the east window of the Priory), which is a striking presence as you enter the grounds.
The walk is stunning, and easy to adapt to different ages. You can circle the paths surrounding the arch or delve further into The Dell, a beautiful woodland walk underneath It is worth noting that the walks are closed between late November and late January.
