Congham Hall Hotel offers free entry to Sandringham Estate

Filed under Accommodation, Attractions

Congham Hall Hotel is offering guests free entry to the nearby Sandringham Estate, the Queen’s Norfolk retreat, to mark the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty’s coronation on 2 June 1953.

The newly relaunched hotel, which sits on the edge of the Queen’s 20,000-acre property, will give guests who book one room for two or more nights in June (Sunday to Thursday) two complimentary tickets to Sandringham, so that they may explore the House, Gardens and Museum.

Congham Hall is proud of its proximity to, and historical links with, Sandringham. The Queen Mother was a regular visitor for Sunday lunch when visiting Norfolk, and the hotel has played host to members of the royal household and their guests over the years because of its convenient location.
Keeping up the royal connection, the hotel’s recently relaunched restaurant menu features the seasonal addition of Red Poll beef – from the Queen’s own herd, which is reared on the estate.

Guests who take up the opportunity to visit Sandringham in June will be able to enjoy a new exhibition in the Ballroom, which recalls last year’s Diamond Jubilee. On loan from the Royal Collection, it features 60 photographs and a selection of the 100,000 cards of congratulation that were sent to Her Majesty from around the world.

The Queen has owned the estate since her accession to the throne in 1952 and it has been the private home of four generations of British monarchs since 1862. King George VI, was born in York Cottage within the grounds and died at Sandringham House, while Park House was the family home of the Spencers and the birthplace of the late Diana, Princess of Wales.

Every Christmas, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh stay in the main house, an Edwardian mansion, along with other family members. Their attendance at the Christmas Day service at St Mary Magdalene Church, in nearby Sandringham village, is always a time of celebration for the local population. The estate has also long been a favourite retreat of the Duke of Cambridge. And last month it was revealed that planning permission had been granted for major improvement work to Anmer Hall, in the estate grounds, which it is believed the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will make their family home.

A double room at Congham Hall, with breakfast, costs from £125 per night for midweek stays. To book, visit Congam Hall web site or call 01485 600250.
