An Invitation to View Bressingham Hall and Gardens through the Historic Houses scheme.
The Grade II listed Bressingham Hall and its companion High Barn have been lovingly restored to their elegant Regency origins by the Bloom family, which has just celebrated seven decades there. Surrounded by the 17 acres of world famous gardens, often seen on TV, there is something for everyone through the seasons.The house tour includes the drawing room, dining room, bedrooms, kitchen and former dairy. The Hall has been completely refurbished and visitors will learn what can be done to refurnish and revitalise such a house on a tight budget.The gardens range from the colourful island borders encircling the front of the house, laid out by founder Alan Bloom, to Foggy Bottom gardens developed by Alan’s son Adrian. Here you will find wide curving walks and great drifts or ‘rivers’ of perennials and grasses. Visitors may picnic in the picnic area situated between the house and the Steam Museum. This and the steam engines is under Trustee ownership and may also be visited (separately) payable on entry. There are two small cafes within the garden centre and museum.
Tours are usually conducted by members of the family and/or the garden curator. They begin with the barn and an introduction to the gardens followed by a tour of the house.
Duration: 2-2.5 hours
