The Norfolk Country Retreat of HM The Queen
Sandringham’s Museum is home to a fine collection of Royal vehicles dating back to 1900. In addition it holds an extraordinary collection of objects ranging from the very large 1939 Merryweather fire engine, to the very small Indian doll dancers in the Curio Cupboard, and from grand gifts in pearl and exotic hardwoods, given to The Queen on State Visits abroad, to personal items such as the clock in the Royal Pigeon Lofts at Sandringham used to time Her Majesty’s racing pigeons.
The Museum is housed in the former coach houses and stable block which, over the years, have also been used as police post, fire brigade station, Carving School and Royal garages.
Sandringham House is set in 60 acres of beautiful gardens, well known as the finest of the Royal gardens, and is open daily from Easter to mid-October. All the main ground floor rooms used by The Royal Family, full of their treasured ornaments, portraits and furniture and still maintained in the style of King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra, are open to the public.
